Handcrafted Cheese from the Appel Family Dairy in Whatcom County! “Havarti is a semi-soft cow’s-milk cheese created in the mid-1800s by Hanne Nielsen, a Danish woman who traveled around Europe to learn cheesemaking techniques. Upon returning to her farm in Denmark, she experimented with washing her curds in fresh spring water before pressing them into cheese molds and draining them. This resulted in a soft, creamy new cheese that she named after her farm, Havarthigaard. Havarti is smooth, with no rind, and pale in color, with very small and irregular “eyes”. It has a buttery aroma, and creamy flavor.”
Wedges are typically in the .4 – .5 lb range.
