Cow Cheeses

We produce small-batch, hand-made artisanal goat and cow cheeses that are inspired by the Finger Lakes region. Our milk comes from known, sustainable sources and each batch is crafted carefully by hand. Decades of experience have culminated in consistently high products, as well as the ability to develop custom products to specific high volume customers.

Our Cow Cheese Selection

               Blue Yonder – Cow’s Milk Blue Cheese

Our Blue Yonder is  a creamy cow’s milk blue cheese with natural rind that is both subtle, complex and approachable. While the rich Holstein                                                                                                       milk  gives the paste a lovely yellow color, it is marbled throughout with pockets and streaks of bue.Blue Yonder was awarded first place in its                                                                                                       category at the 2023 American Cheese Society’s competition.




                    Lake Effect Cheddar – 6-Month Cow’s Milk Cheddar

Our Lake Effect Cheddar is made from extremely fresh (usually the cheese is made the day of milking) local  cow’s milk. Our cheddar is typically                                                                                                  aged  for 6 months and exhibits a nice blend of traditional cheddar “sharpness” as well as a pleasing nuttiness that is rare in American cheddars


                 Shire – “Beer Cheese”

Shire is the result of a collaboration with Hopshire Brewing in Dryden, NY. While making the gouda, we soak the curds in Shire Ale, a dark malty                                                                                                Scotch Ale. The resulting cheese is imbued with the toasty flavors of the dark malt and a slight coffee-like bitterness.




        Sheldrake Moon – Brie-style Cheese

Sheldrake Moon, named for the reflection of the moon on the waters of Cayuga Lake at Sheldrake Point, is a bloomy- rind cheese, similar to Brie in                style, made from whole cow milk. As the cheese ages, the paste breaks down into a lovely cream line that gives the cheese a lusciously rich texture.

        Lively Run Sheldrake Moon pairs excellently with dry Riesling and Champagne- style dry Ciders.






      Gorge Trail Gouda

This cheese is made following a traditional Dutch recipe, but aged in natural rind on wooden boards, not waxed.

This results in a firmer texture and a more complex flavor, as well as an assertiveness that sets it apart from other Gouda style cheeses.
