FROM OUR CHEESE CASE: Westfield Farm Classic Blue

blue_cheese_goatWestfield Farm has been handcrafting award-winning farmstead cheeses in Hubbardston. Mass., since 1971. Located on 20 acres in Central Massachusetts, the farm turns out a little over 1500 pounds of cheese per week.

Westfield Farm Classic Blue is a unique, 4.5 oz, slightly-aged goat cheese log, and is their flagship cheese, and a first prize winner at the 1999 American Cheese Society’s annual judging.

It is one of a very few external blue chevres made in the world. Served in a number of America’s finest restaurants, the Classic Blue is often seen as the focal point of a fine cheese board or as as a medalion placed atop a filet or vegetable dish. The Roquefort rind is a striking color that develops on the surface and slowly ripens toward the center.
