Vaquero Blue

Vaquero Blue

Vaquero Blue is produced at Willow Hill Farm - a small diversified farm in Vermont, run by husband-wife team Willow Smart and David Phinney. All the cheeses made at their farm are ripened in small underground caves on the property.

Vaquero Blue is a cow's milk Spanish-style cheese named after the vaqueros - the first cowboys from Spain to conquer the Wild West. This cave ripened blue cheese imparts notes of fresh butter and cream with hints of chocolate at the finish. It is an award-winning cheese, having won bronze medal at the World Cheese Awards Oct 2009.
