Green Dirt Farm, LLC
We make our own FARMSTEAD SHEEP’S MILK CHEESES and YOGURT by hand on our farm using milk from our own GENTLY RAISED, GRASS-FED EWES. Our ANIMAL WELFARE APPROVED farm is located in the scenic Missouri River bluffs outside Weston. The grasses and legumes in our carefully tended pastures give our artisan cheeses and yogurt a unique richness and lovely depth of flavor not found anywhere else.
Also on the menu: 100% GRASS-FED LAMB of unsurpassed quality, tenderness, and flavor. Come visit us at The BadSeed Market on Fridays and at other area farmers’ markets from May through November. Please visit our webs site for details about our farmers’ market schedule. You may also visit us at the farm during our event season for Cheese Appreciation Events, Farm Table Dinners and Cheese Kitchen tours; see http://bit.ly/W1EI5h for details and ticket information.
We look forward to seeing you!
This cheese has an edible rind which has been washed with brine while it ages. Washing the rind develops the beautiful orange color that gives the cheese its distinctive flavor and aroma. When fully ripe the cheese has a nutty, meaty, musky flavor. The texture is firm when young, softening with age.
Prairie Tomme (3 pound round cut into wedges)
Prairie Tomme is a French alpine style cheese that is similar to Gruyere or Gouda. The cheese has a smooth firm texture and a buttery, nutty taste. Its flavors reflect the pastures that our ewes are eating, with floral grassy notes and an earthy aroma. It is made as a 3 pound wheel of cheese that is cut into wedges when it is ready to eat. It is aged 2 months or more.
