Bellwether Farms was originally a sheep dairy - an animal that is surprisingly resilient in the arid Northern California climate and produces rich, flavorful milk. The Callahan’s still maintain their own flock and use the raw milk to produce this delicious peppercorn-studded cheese. The cheese itself is nutty, lemony and herbaceous, which is in perfect balance with the spiced and floral notes of the peppercorns. This cheese is fabulous on a cheeseboard or makes a zippy addition when shaved over fresh pasta.
