Back at Bellwether Farms, it occurred to the Callahan's that a cheese of this type might appeal to customers in the US as an alternative to the young Cheddars or Jack cheeses that dominated the market. Cheesemaker Liam Callahan began working on the cheese by using a pecorino recipe as a starting point and making changes in response to the flavors and texture of the cheese. Eventually he found a combination that brought the family back to the cheese they tasted in Milan. Carmody is meant to highlight the buttery flavors of Jersey milk. At that point Liam gave it a name with local meaning – Carmody is the road that runs adjacent to Bellwether Farm.
