Green Dirt Aux ArcsGreen Dirt Farm
Aux Arcs (pronounced “Ozark”) is a rustic, mountain style, hard cheese made with blended sheep and cow’s milk. We make the cheese during the summer and fall when the sheep and cows are on pasture. The cheese highlights the wonderful flavors that develop using milk from animals raised on a diverse diet of grasses, legumes and forbs. It is a cooked and pressed hard cheese. It is aged at least 2 months, and during the first month the rind is washed with brine, after that the rind is allowed to develop a lovely, natural “croute fleurie”, giving our Aux Arcs wheels a beautiful, natural rind with an earthy flavor.
Aux Arcs is milky and buttery with sweet pineapple notes, and hints of flowers. Its rind is evocative of damp earth and mushrooms. It pairs well with hoppy beers, and crisp, minerally white wines. It makes a wonderful grilled cheese sandwich, or mac and cheese and melts beautifully on steamed or baked potatoes.
