Inspired by the classic Spanish sheep milk cheese Manchego, our cows' milk Womanchego is aged 3 to 5 months, making it more similar to a young Manchego than the aged version most commonly found in cheese shops. The flavor is medium mild and a touch sweet with hints of fruit and nut. Moister than its Spanish cousin, our Womanchego is a versatile partner that is delicious on sandwiches or melted.
Age: 3-5 months
About Cato Corner Farm:
At Cato Corner Farm they make raw farmstead cheese by hand from the delicious milk of our 45 Jersey cows. The cows are humanely raised on a pasture-based diet without growth hormones or subtherapeutic antibiotics. They feed a small amount of grain to complement the nutrition in the grass and hay. Their cheeses are their own unique recipes, based on traditional cheese making styles and highlighting the flavor and terroir of their pastures and farm. Cato Corner Farm is owned and managed by the mother-son team of Elizabeth MacAlister and Mark Gillman.
