1/2 lb. – $10.00 USD
This cheese was created to carry on the tradition of North Argyle Cheese Factory, local cheese making facility located about a mile and half north of the Argyle Cheese Farmer’s current cheese house. The North Argyle Cheese Factory was known for the delicious cheddar cheese it made using local farmers’ milk. The Randles have copies of invoices detailing the milk sold and cheese produced from their farm, Randles Fairview Farm, in the early 1900’s.
This cheese is based on Dunlop, a Scottish cheddar cheese. It is an old cheese recipe made by the farmers of Scotland. Several changes were made to the recipe to adapt it to Randles Fairview Farms milk. Several critical techniques were taught to the cheesemaker by Val Brines, a well known expert on making farmstead English Cheddars. In 2008 Val spent three days making cheese with Marge at the cheese house in Argyle. Her input has resulted in a smooth, creamy yet sharp cheese.
The cheese is waxed to hold in the moisture as the flavors develop over the 6-12 months aging process.
Revival is the farmer’s favorite. He enjoys a piece with his apple pie or puts a couple of slices on whole grain bread to make a toasted cheese sandwich, fit for an “important person”.
