Hillsborough Cheese Company focuses on fresh and aged cheese made from cow and goat milk. They are known best for chevre and bloomin’ cheeses in a variety of flavors. It’s a family business – even Cindy’s children are involved and her husband Dorian has joined her to focus on marketing and sales efforts. The West family is passionate about eating and supporting local food and consider themselves locavores!
Here are some fun facts about their mozzarella cheese – one of our favorites at The Produce Box:
- The Hillsborough Cheese Co. mozzarella is a low-moisture, firmer ball of cheese that is slightly yellow in appearance with a texture similar to a mozzarella snack stick.
- This harder, firm mozzarella ball is perfect for shredding and easy to slice.
- Conventional mozzarella is often artificially dyed to produce the white mozzarella cheese that most of us are used to seeing.
- Cindy’s mozzarella is NOT artificially colored, so the yellow color is actually a GOOD thing!
