A Californian original, created by mother and son dairy duo Cindy & Liam Callahan of Bellwether Farms. Cindy founded the farm in 1986, turning from a career in nursing, and her son Liam came on board soon after as head cheesemaker.
Carmody is inspired by the young cheese made around Milan, most of which in consumed locally and a rare find outside of Italy. Made to showcase the buttery, sweet flavors of Jersey cows milk, the cheese is mild and lactic in flavor with a yogurty tang reminiscent of fresh milk and a spring breeze. The texture is buttery and pliant with excellent meltability, making it a star in the kitchen. The subtle flavor makes this a great breakfast cheese, delicious drizzled with honey on a hearty raisin bread. Named for the Carmody River that runs adjacent to the Callahans’ property, a reminder of the connection between food, farmer and land.
