Cheesehive

If all this time you thought bees were making pollen, you were wrong: they're making cheese.

We think cow cheese, goat cheese, and sheep cheese all get way too much credit. What about bee cheese?

Just because we might not automatically associate bees with cheese doesn't mean they, too, aren't experts at the craft. Isn't it quite possible that this Beehive cheese is made from the artisan legs and steady wingtips of worker bees?

Why are we so quick to assume that this Ipanema and Promontory can't be made by the tiny buzzing yellow and black blurs? Is it something we read? Something we saw on TV?

We say embrace the bee! Recognize the Promontory for its buttery, full-bodied texture and enjoy the Crio Bru cocoa beans in the Ipanema.

Oh, what's that? This cheese is made from cows? Well, nevermind then. Enjoy you're consistently tasty cow cheese.

Features

Promontory, 1 lb.

As the patriarch of the Beehive family of cheeses, Promontory is an Irish-style cheese with buttery, full-bodied texture and snappy, citrus-like fruity notes.
 
Quality Ingredients:
Promontory, as well as all Beehive cheeses, is made from the milk of Jersey cows from Ogden’s Wadeland South Dairy. Wadeland’s Jersey cows enjoy 350 acres near the salty marshes, ponds and mudflats of the mineral-loaded soil of the Great Salt Lake. The same nutrient-rich soil that feeds thousands of migrating birds, feeds the lush alfalfa that the cows love to eat.

Ipanema, 1 lb.

Ipanema is an Irish-style cow’s milk cheese that is hand-rubbed until it’s tan and lovely with Sierra Nevada cultured butter and Crio Bru cocoa beans sourced from the Vega Real Valley in the Dominican Republic.

Quality Ingredients:
Crio Bru, Beehive's neighbors in Lindon, Utah, have perfected the art of roasting and brewing cocoa beans. In 2011 Crio Bru introduced Beehive to what the Mayans called the Drink of the Gods and they instantly knew it needed to be rubbed on its award-winning cheese. Using Sierra Nevada cultured butter to adhere the roasted beans to the rind was a no-brainer - who doesn’t love cocoa and butter?

Made from the milk of Jersey cows, Ipanema is rich and creamy with notes of dark chocolate and ripe summer strawberries.

Promontory, 1 lb.

Pairing Suggestions:

  • Medium to full-bodied red wines, ales and IPAs
  • Honey, preserves, gourmet mac-and-cheese, grilled Panini with roasted red peppers

Interesting Fact:
Jersey cows are the smallest, and arguably the cutest, of dairy cow breeds. Despite their small size, they produce milk with the highest protein and fat content. Higher fat and protein means the milk is creamier. This is why Beehive cheese crafts such beautifully creamy cheese.

Why the name Ipanema?
Tim Welsh, co-owner of Beehive Cheese, is an audiophile and lover of all genres of music; particularly jazz. It’s not uncommon to visit Tim’s Utah home and listen to Stan Getz on vinyl or reel-to-reel with a Negroni in hand.
 
One of Tim’s favorite tunes is the Girl from Ipanema because it transports you instantly to a breezy beach in Brazil filled with carefree, sun-kissed beach-goers. The moment Tim tasted Beehive's first batch of Ipanema he connected its warm creaminess and strawberry notes with his favorite Stan Getz song. The cocoa-tanned rind reminded him of the alluring Girl from Ipanema who walked to the sea everyday.

Uintah, Utah
From corporate to artisan: Brothers-in-law Pat Ford and Tim Welsh are passionate about their handmade cheese!
 
When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth. That’s because Beehive Cheese is made from the creamiest milk in Utah and lovingly crafted into superior cheese by a family who shares a passion for the artisan way of life.

In 2005, brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a simple way of life as cheese makers. They traded their grinding commute and laptops for quiet pre-dawn mornings sitting with 500 gallons of farm-fresh milk carefully mixing and warming it for hours to develop their unique cheese. Delighting in the sweet smell of warm milk, they fell in love with the natural rhythms of making cheese the old fashioned way. The long days of polishing their recipe and the months spent waiting with an artisan’s patience for wheels to ripen to perfection have made our cheeses some of the best in America. The Beehive Cheese family is delighted to share our passion with you.
