When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth- that's because it's made from some of the creamiest and cleanest milk in Utah, lovingly crafted into specialty cheese by a family who shares a passion for the artisan way of life. In 2005, brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a more simple way of life as artisan cheese makers. They traded in their grinding traffic commute for quiet mornings sitting with 500 gallons of farm-fresh milk. They gave up briefcases and laptops for the romance of making hand-crafted cheese: hours spent mixing and warming milk, feeling it thicken and envelope the room with the sweet smell of custard. Days spent following natural rhythms: waking before dawn to welcome new milk and feeling the tired ache of sore muscles at day's end and months waiting with an artisan's patience for their cheeses to ripen to perfection.
Full Moon is one of Beehive's more earthy cheeses- the very first batch was made under a full moon. Made with clean, raw milk form Wadeland South Dairy, Full Moon carries earthy flavor undertones that reflect the unique four season climate where Tim and Pat live and make cheese. The initial sweetness of this cheese slowly fades as a rising sharpness tickles your tongue. Its firm texture makes this a great cheese for slicing or shredding.
