Weybridge is a VT Certified Organic, lactic-set cheese with a delicate, bloomy rind. The lightly-aged style is meant to showcase the Scholten's distinctive Dutch Belt milk. To learn her craft, Patty studied at the Vermont Institute of Artisan Cheese followed by a dedicated period of development, where she and Roger were able to draw upon the expertise of Vermont's rich artisan cheese community.
The 4 1/2 oz medallion appeals to any occasion - a snack for two or garnish to a larger spread. The white, edible mold rind imparts a subtle cave aroma and a mushroom character to the developing creamline beneath. The center is moist and airy with bright citrus notes and a savory 'toasted' finish. Weybridge's clean, milky flavor makes it an ideal breakfast cheese, or companion to a glass of sparkling wine.
Patty and Roger Scholten manage a small herd of Dutch Belt cows in the rolling landscape of Weybridge, VT. Organic production and top quality helps them compete in the milk trade, but adding value to the milk on the farm with their newly constructed cheese house has created new opportunities for the family business.
