HEBER VALLEY ARTISAN CHEESE
THIS PLACE. You guys--this place! Who knew that the highlight of our weekend getaway to Midway, UT would be the cheese factory? It was fascinating. I loved everything about it. The building, the location, the freshness, the tastes, the owners, the process of cheese making....bring it on.
OH, WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN CHEESES!
And here we have Vic talking to Grant, the owner. He is a third generation dairy farmer. We got the entire inside scoop on Heber Valley Milk. I found it fascinating. There used to be over 125 dairies in the Heber Valley and now there are 3.
This is where the magic happens. (Or maybe I should have a photo of the inside of your mouth and say that that is where all the magic happens...)
I get to pick whatever cheeses I want? Are you kidding me?
-Orange peel and Rosemary
-Aggiano Parmesean (STOP IT RIGHT NOW!)
-Snake Creek Sharp Cheddar
-Tomato Basil cheese curds
the list goes on
So here's the deal--you can win a free cheese making class (you'll learn how to make your own fresh mozzarella. You'll be able to do it in your kitchen at home and never again buy from the store. I am so excited I can't stand it) AND cheese tasting (the class happens first and then the cheese tasting afterward). Here's what you need to do:
- Go to their facebook page and "like" them.
-Next, tell me why you need a night out (with me and Vic) to learn how to make your own cheese!
-Third, share this link on your facebook page and tell people what a friend we have in cheeses! And in Heber Valley Milk!
LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN YOUR COMMENT SO I CAN CONTACT YOU IF YOU WIN.
The setting is beautiful. You can look out the window and see the cows in the pasture. You can eat fresh soups and sandwiches, ice cream, sample cheese, purchase raw milk, learn how to make yogurt, make new friends, see the GORGEOUS Heber Valley (Midway, specifically. I dreamed we moved there the other night--that's how taken I was with this place.)
Can't wait to meet you and learn to separate our curds from our whey.
Winner will be chosen Thursday, February 28th.
*Note--if you don't win, or don't care to enter the contest, but still want to come to a cheese making class with me, let me know and I'll add you to our list. I think it sounds like a super fun group date night.
