Saxon and Henning’s — just photos

I know I haven’t had a chance to update here much but I was kind of shocked when I saw my last update was from the ACS. That feels like a million years ago. I mean, geez, the holiday pre-orders are rolling into the store already.

So, I think I’m going to just photo dump on you all this week. Here are some cheese highlights of the last few months:

Let’s start with Saxon Creamery in Wisconsin:

Cheese-a-Topia favorites: Saxon Green Fields

Another cheese that surprised me was the Saxon Creamery Greenfields:

The batch at the show seemed to finally reach the bigger flavor and pungency that I’ve always wanted from this cheese. This is true family-farmed cheese from Wisconsin and the price is great for what you get. This is an Oka-style cheese for all you Canadian immigrants out there. Buttery and pungent.

During Best of Show voting I seriously considered this as one of my top 3 cheeses.
