“Ricotta is actually made by "re-cooking' the leftover whey liquid which is separated from the curd in our cheese making process. The lighter, more delicate curds begin to develop as the temperature rises and our Fresh Ricotta is born. It is then hand-landled into straining baskets to cool down. The taste is unlike any Fresh Ricotta you have ever tried.(unless you have been to Italy) Very smooth and creamy, many uses from appetizers to desserts.” — Jersey Girl Cheese at Hillcrest Farm: Orchard & Dairy in Branchville, NJ

About the Farm

“We have always had our dairy cows, but just recently set up a small-batch cheese facility. We pasteurize the milk from our herd of 60 Jersey Cows to make all types of fresh and aged Italian-style cheeses. The Jersey Cows are known for the richness of their milk which works very well for the fresh Mozzarella and Ricotta cheese we are making. Our fresh Mozzarella and Ricotta are not what many people are used to tasting if compared to store bought cheese. We are making it the old fashioned artisan way as they do in Southern Italy. As we begin to produce more, we will build an ageing cave for our provolone style cheeses. “
