BLACK & WHITE COWS.

In the fast-paced world full of scrolling, clicking, viewing and texting it’s no wonder the soul longs for open space coupled with breathtaking views and curious creatures. Truthfully, the sweet memory of an experience is more valuable than treasures untold.

Experience is at the heart of Heber Valley Milk and Artisan Cheese, a small family dairy nestled in the quaint community of Midway, Utah. For nearly 100 years the Kohler family has been producing premium milk — pure, rich and creamy — to delight their consumers. In 2011, the family built a new creamery and began handcraft ing and aging artisan cheese.

Today, visitors can experience the pure goodness of artisan cheese made from premium milk and handcraft ed into the freshest curd (squeaky cheese) or aged into a raw milk, sharp or fl avored cheddar. In addition, the farmstead creamery also makes Queso Fresco, Monterey Salsa Pepper Jack and Juustoleipa (oo-stay-lee-pa, meaning bread-cheese), a natural moist cheese meant to be grilled, toasted or baked.

Fresh cheese samples are served at the farm store daily (with the exception of Sunday), or sign up for the ultimate cheese-tasting experience online at hebervalleyartisancheese.com. In addition, you can purchase other farmstead and handmade products like raw milk, raw honey, jam, fudge and ice cream.

Beyond the farm, Heber Valley Artisan Cheese is ranked among national champions, garnering awards from prestigious organizations like the American Cheese Society, as well as a recognized trend-setter at the Fancy Food Show.

However, despite the national attention, you’ll still find the Kohler Family enjoying the quiet farm lifestyle and greeting visitors like old friends. They love to help others experience the difference of the farmer’s touch.

If you’re craving a memorable experience, consider this an invitation — stop by to sample some fresh or aged cheeses, sit on the patio and watch the cows graze, or sign up for an exclusive cheese-tasting online at hebervalleyartisancheese.com
