A fresh mold ripened pasteurized cow’s milk version is ready for the Winter months. The Hummingbirds have a flavor range from a light, citrus fresh flavor at a younger age to a delectable dollop of sweet unctuous cream in weeks 6-8 of its aging. Hummingbirds are a light, delicate rind cheese (delicate just like the beautiful Hummingbirds found in nature) and are a true embodiment of seasonal pasture-raised milk. In the Spring and Summer months the Hummingbird wheels are made with sheep and cow’s milk blended together for the full flavors of the peak milk season at the farm.
Mixed milk - 80% sheep's milk & 20% Cows milk and aged for 7 days in the caves, sold at 1-3 weeks old and will continue to ripen for 4-6 weeks.
