2018 American Cheese Society 1st Place Award Winner
2018 Pennsylvania Farm Show Blue Ribbon Award Winner
Revittle's Shepherd's Delight is a Pennsylvania Farm Show Blue Ribbon Cheese and an American Cheese Society 1st Place Award Winning Cheese. Shepherd’s Delight is a Tomme style table cheese reminiscent of farmer’s cheese made and eaten on the farm. This cheese is remarkable for its simplicity and essential place in the rhythms of everyday life. Its production recycles leftover milk and its flavor is satisfying and honest.
This everyday cheese has a flavor far apart from a common everyday grocery cheese. It has a sharp taste and a firm texture and is made from fresh, raw, whole sheep’s milk. Its seasoned appearance is due to the aging process which takes place in a cave and ranges from 4 -12 months. The microflora in cave-aging creates the earthy rind. The “tomme-iness” or aroma is not unlike the cave it is aged in: Rustic, earthy, and loamy. This Tomme cheese is made during the summer months when the sheep are grazing on sun warmed sweet grasses.
Shepherd’s Delight Tomme is an exceptional, satisfying cheese, something to eat and enjoy on a daily basis. Wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Zinfandel match deliciously with Shepherd’s Delight. This table cheese rests well on a sideboard at room temperature where it is accessible for all day quick snacking. Find a place for this award winning cheese on your cheese or charcuterie board as it never disappoints. It shines on a natural grain cracker with a dollop of sweet fig preserves. Shave some on a salad overflowing with fresh seasonal vegetables or pack in a lunch with sweet juicy berries and crunchy nuts.
