Royer Mountain Cheese received a “Best in Show” and “First Prize” in the semi-hard and hard cheese category at the Pennsylvania Farm Show cheese competition in January 2018. The judges agreed that this cheese deserved recognition for its spectacular taste and flavor. This stand alone cheese takes you on a full-bodied flavor trip that begins with a smooth creamy texture and closes with a sharp pungent burst of flavor. Royer Mountain is an Alpine cheese that is made by Clover Creek Cheese Cellar. It shares the twin Italian flavors of Parmesan and Romano that together foretell mountain breezes gently sweeping through cool green pastures. It is handcrafted from fresh, high quality, cultured raw cow’s milk, salt, and rennet, and cellar-aged for nineteen months. The aging process maximizes the levels of acid and beneficial bacteria in the cheese. The cheeses are turned weekly with a keen constant eye on the temperature of the cellar which results in a delicious, pampered cheese.
Grate this cheese over pizza or any of your favorite Italian dishes to give them a unique double flavor sensation. It is also a pleasing addition to breadcrumb mixtures for sauteed meats and vegetables. Sprinkle over salads and seafood pasta for that last memorable touch of rich flavor. Royer Mountain is simply delicious grated liberally over fresh hot popcorn cooked in olive oil on the stove and topped with a dash of cracked pepper. It also has a place of honor on a well designed, flavorful, cheese board.
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.
