Made between May and October, while the cows are grazing on fresh pastures, the grass-fed milk produces flavour complexity in Uplands Special Reserve that can’t be replicated.
Pleasant Ridge Reserve is made in the tradition of alpine cheeses by Uplands Cheese, a family run dairy and cheese making facility located on ‘Pleasant Ridge’ in south western Wisconsin.
The cheese is only made between May and October, while the cows are grazing on fresh pastures. The grass-fed milk produces flavour complexity in cheese that can’t be replicated when cows are eating machine harvested feed.
The flavours of Pleasant Ridge Reserve are reminiscent of another alpine classic – Beaufort, with hints of caramel and salt, together with complex layers of grass and flora.
Note: Pleasant Ridge Reserve was named ‘Best of Show’ at the 2001, 2005 and 2010 American Cheese Society competitions.
