This smooth, semi-soft, washed curd cheese is aged for six months. Weissa Kase means “white cheese” in Pennsylvania Dutch. It’s an excellent all-purpose cheese, with a creamy, buttery flavor, a touch of tang, and a long, silky finish. Put slices on sandwiches, crackers, or a cheese board, along with preserves, crisp apples, or summer’s berries. It also does well in casseroles. To drink, go for a sweet white wine, wheat beer or pilsner.

Contents: 4-ounce block of cheese

Details

Producer: Goot Essa

Location: Howard, Pennsylvania 

In the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect, “Goot Essa” means “good food” or “good eating.” Goot Essa began in 2001 with a cooperative of six farm families. Today it’s owned and operated by John Esh Jr. and his wife, Anny Mary. Each farmer continues to work their fields with horse and manpower instead of machines, which means the farms are small and every acre and animal are cared for with love and respect. The farmers contribute fresh, high-quality milk, which Goot Essa’s cheese makers craft into small-batch, hand-made, all-natural cheese.

This farmstead, raw cow milk cheese is made with milk from the Esh family farm in central Pennsylvania’s Nittany Valley. It’ll keep unopened in your refrigerator for three months. Once opened, wrap loosely in parchment or wax paper and eat within two to three weeks.
