Description: This is a raw cows milk cheese.
Aged for 36 months. The Mountain Valley Sharp Cheddar is Goot Essa’s signature, traditional cheese. This is an all-natural raw cows milk farmstead cheddar which they age for 3 years to develop the nuttiness and creamy taste which gourmet cheese lovers really appreciate. Israel, their renowned cheese maker, has spent years developing the complex flavor typical of the original German-Swiss artisanal recipe taken directly from their Amish heritage. This cheese is a completely hand-made white cheddar with a well-rounded sharpness and a deep cheddar flavor. This is also a versatile cheese that melts well for recipes that call for cheddar cheese and is a terrific base in fondues. Great as either an appetizer or as a dessert, Mountain Valley Sharp Cheddar also works well on charcuterie boards.

Storage: Shelf life 4 months. Once opened, rewrap every fews days to maintain freshness. 

Goot Essa

Goot Essa began in 2001 with a group of Amish dairy farmers who worked together to produce high quality cheese with some of their milk. Their goal then, as now, was to use their cheese-making expertise to provide enough extra income to keep their families on the farm. They have chosen to work their fields in the traditional way, with horse and manpower instead of machines. This means that their farms will be small, but each acre and each animal is cared for with love and the respect of nature because theirs are true family farms. Their goal is to offer food products made from the freshest, highest quality, all-natural ingredients. They make it all by hand, in small quantities, giving each one their individual attention. In the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect, “Goot Essa” means “good food” or “good eating.” It seems only natural to name their group Goot Essa, because they want you to share in their love of hand-made, good old-fashioned food—food with all the subtlety that means slowly aged and gourmet. Goot Essa, because they want you to share their love of recipes passed down over hundreds of years. That is their story—pride in the past, with hope for the future—Goot Essa.
