Everton Premium Reserve is our Everton cheese that has been allowed to age a minimum of 18 months before developing the deep, sharp flavor for which it is known. With a paste that becomes speckled with salt crystals and has a slightly drier texture than its younger version, Everton Premium Reserve combines sweet and sharp with subtle fruity notes. From the first bite through to the layers at the finish, Everton Premium Reserve is a wonderful expression of grass-fed milk and a premium aging time.

Welcome to Jacobs and Brichford Cheese! Since the early 1800’s, our land has been home to a family farm here in SE Indiana, nestled in the Whitewater River Valley. All the milk used in our cheese is produced on our farm, from our grass-fed, Jersey, Normande and Tarentaise cross cows. We also have a small flock of hair sheep and a drift of Berkshire hogs. We operate a seasonal dairy–following nature’s rhythm of milking (in a New Zealand style outdoor parlor) and move our cows through fresh pastures each day. We manage our resources meticulously, use limited inputs, and create all natural, grass-fed milk and cheeses of the highest quality.

We are Leslie Jacobs and Matthew Brichford, and we have lived on the Brichford family farm since 1981.  We have built our married life together on the farm, raising three daughters who have spent their summers milking cows and chasing the other animals (and their sisters) around the fields.  We are proud to be an active part of our local community, celebrating our rich family history in the area, which dates back to 1819.  Today, Matthew manages the farm and makes our artisan cheese.  Leslie and daughter Maize help with the cheese marketing. Daughter Miah is in charge of milking and helps with grazing management. Welsh Corgi Mirk is an active worker on the farm, running alongside the cows encouragingly.

It has been a goal of ours to stay on the family’s Hoosier Homestead property. With fifteen years in the dairy business, we believe we have developed a vision that will allow us to continue to operate our family farm in a sustainable way for generations to come.
