Le Mov’li – Fleurs de Foin

Characteristics :   A soft, bloomy white rind, tomme-style cheese infused with hay flowers, aged 12 days

Type of Milk :  Raw cow’s milk from the cows raised on the family’s farm

Tasting Notes :  A Gold medal Award winner at the 2022 Concours Suisse des Produits du Terroir, this cheese hits all the right notes.  It smells like the countryside with fresh hay and mushroom.  It is creamy, grassy, with a light texture.  You can feel the pieces of hay but in a pleasant way reminding you of the terroir the milk comes from.

Serving Suggestion :  A lovely addition to an apéro and a great conversation starter.  Be sure to allow to rest at room temperature before enjoying to allow the delicate hay flower flavors to evolve.
