Clover Creek Cheese Cellar Pirate BlueClover Creek Cheese Cellar
Our blue cheese style.
Our cheese consultant challenged us to taste molds before we cut them off and throw them away because we might find a pleasant surprise. We finally were brave enough to try that with our Pirate Blue.
The tangy, crusty rind gives it a hearty flavor that is definitely a trait of pirates. The chalky salty edge brings back childhood memories of crossing the bay to get to the ocean. The smooth interior crossed with blue veins shows the goodness and kindness that hides in many a pirate heart. Are you ready for a high sea adventure?
Ingredients: Cultured raw milk, salt and rennet.

In the early 1990s, Dave, Terry, and one-year-old Anthony Rice moved to a beautiful farm in Blair County's Morrison's Cove Valley. They named the farm "Ojala" which in Spanish interprets to "may God grant you the desires of your heart."
In a few years they changed their farm from a conventional feeding system to a grazing farm which more aptly reflected their passion for a good healthy life. A grazing system allowed them to form a symbiotic relationship which would mutually benefit their cows and the land. Grass-fed and pasture-raised cows are known to give a higher-quality and better-tasting milk. In 2005, the Rice family decided to start Clover Creek Cheese Cellar so they could turn Ojala Farm's milk into delicious artisan cheese. Since Clover Creek flows lazily through the pastures and fields of Ojala Farm it was the perfect choice. In 2007 they built their own cheese creamery and cheese production began.
Over 10 years later, the Rice family continues to raise their herd of Milking Shorthorns, Jerseys, Ayrshires, and crossbred cows on healthy green pastures. Some of their grass-fed raw milk is bottled to sell on the farm, in farmers markets, and in stores throughout Pennsylvania. The remainder of their milk is naturally transformed into award winning farmstead artisan cheeses. The Rices are continually improving their process to make every batch of cheese more delicious than the last so that you can taste and enjoy the farm fresh flavor of Clover Creek Cheese Cellar cheese. All of their cheeses begin with all natural ingredients including cultured raw milk, salt, rennet and an array of additional herbs, vegetables, and wine.
