Cheese that is alive
Here at Triple Island Farms we use a few different methods in the production processes of our cheese that were discovered back in the old country. These processes became tried and true and contributed to the fame that Gouda cheese enjoys. These methods include the use of grass-fed milk, un-pasteurized milk, traditional cheese making methods and recipes, Kosher rennet, traditional aging methods and more. Following are more details on some of these processes.
Grass-Fed Cow's Milk
The diet of the cows plays a crucial role in the health benefits as well as in the flavor profile of the finished cheese. The effects of the diet that is fed to the cow is first noticed in the milk. It has been proven that grass-fed cows have a far healthier digestive system. When their digestive system is in good health they are able to absorb more nutrients and therefor produce a healthier more nutritious milk. This is the type of milk that we at Triple Island Farms sources. When you purchase our products you can be ensured that the very best milk is being used, and therefor you are consuming the very best cheese. It will be healthy as well as flavorful.

The Cheese Making Process
Our making process has been fine-tuned in the old country to maximize the health and flavor of the cheese. The time and temperature of the making process are key to the finished product. Without the careful watch of the cheese maker the cheese can become off flavored, hard and dry, and may not age well. During the making process the PH levels are watched very closely. The PH levels determine when to move on to the next step. Because the enzymes and cultures of the cheese curds are alive, the timing can be different for each batch. The cheesemaker has to closely watch a variety of metrics as he is creating the cheese. Follow this link to learn more of the value of the tried and true, traditional cheese making processes
