June Cheese of the Month: Amazing Green Onion Cheddar
The Potsdam Food Co-op’s featured Cheese of the Month for June is Organic Green Onion Cheddar, an American Cheese Society Award-Winning Cheese from Neighborly Farms of Randolph, Vermont. It is one of ten kinds of cheese produced by this family dairy farm which has been in operation since the 1920s and is USDA certified organic. All of the Neighborly Farms cheeses are produced from the pasteurized milk of the farm’s herd of Holstein cows. Green Onion Cheddar is made with organic green onions, vegetable rennet, and is completely gluten-free. It is Neighborly Farms’ best-selling flavored cheese. Pair this mild cheddar with light white or red wines such as Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Pinot Noir.
