Meadowood Farms is an idyllic farm, smack in the middle of New York state where Veronica Pedraza creates a variety of cheeses using the milk from their flock of East Friesian sheep.
Lorenzo is a medium-format, sheep milk cheese, washed as it ages with cider from the nearby Harvest Moon Cidery. Not overwhelming aromatic we still put this one in the category of "stinky" cheeses. Forthright with its flavors, and with a dense and rich texture, we find that this cheese is a perfect pair for a crisp and lightly sweet cider.
This seasonal cheese is typically available mid-June through February.
Meadowood Farms is a 225-acre sheep and cattle farm, perched on a ridge in Madison County, New York. The farm raises Belted Galloway cattle for beef and breeding stock, and East Friesian dairy sheep for lamb and sheep milk products.
Veronica Pedraza is the talented cheesemaker behind Meadowood Farm's cheeses. A veteran of Jasper Hill Farms, she has developed several wonderful cheeses at her new base in central New York state. Her first cheese, Rippleton, is a washed rind delight. Rippleton was followed by Ledyard and Lorenzo.
We always look forward to a visit from Veronica who is extremely knowledgeable about cheese and all things dairy related - not to mention great fun to laugh with over a few wedges of cheese and a brew or two!
