This wheel is about 8lbs. We make a small handful of bleu cheeses. Kentucky Bleu is the most decadent, with added cream and a loose pressing to allow all of that amazing sweet and salty roquefort blue do its thing. Why do we wax it? Well….partly it is an homage to the Bluegrass, that iron-rich turf that makes our state a famous place to raise the fastest horses money can buy. Others would speculate that it has something to do with a certain celebrated local tradition of basketball. One thing we do know is that the wax has an effect on the cheese as it ages to keep things really nice and creamy. You will know it when you taste it. If you are a lover of blue cheeses and generally gravitate to the funkiest thing in the room, this is your cheese!
