From the land of Salt and Honey comes this exciting new cheese from Utah's Beehive Cheese Co. SeaHive starts with their recipe for cheddar, which is then hand-rubbed with Beehive wildflower honey and local Redmond RealSalt. The honey is harvested from a local farm where the bees visit wildflowers and fruit orchards. The salt is from an ancient sea bed near Redmond, Utah and contains unique flecks of color that are the result of more than 50 natural trace minerals. This cheese is shaping up to be one of the cheesemaking brothers' best experiments yet, and is a true expression of their local flavors.
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. Their days are spent following natural rhythms: waking before dawn to welcome new milk, 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.
