Available Cheeses

I started out making just blues. No one in Ohio was doing blues, and it’s really where I thought I would fit in the marketplace.

We had early success winning two American Cheese Society Awards, but I quickly grew bored of making the same cheeses over and over. So as more and more people at market requested a non-blue cheese I started experimenting with a few recipes.

While the list may seem long, it’s really about 4 recipes done in cow or sheep or sometimes blended with both.

All cheeses made at Yellow House Cheese are handmade from raw milk and aged for at least 60 days. All sheep milk comes from our own flock and our cow milk comes from a small family farm 10 miles from the creamery.

Special batches and recipes are available seasonally.
