Organic lavender blossoms grown in Southern Oregon are added during the cheesemake process, infusing the buttery curds with earthy, floral flavors.

 

Finding the perfect balance when cooking with lavender is challenging, and we like to think we hit a sweet spot with this cheddar. Many customers agree: this cheese enjoys a cult following among Rogue Valley locals!
