The Farm at Doe Run, located in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, is based on the philosophy of sustainable organic farming. The farm's culinary garden team strives to produce the highest quality fruits and vegetables, while the ACS award winning creamery creates some of the most sought-after cheeses in Chester County. In order to reflect the bounty of the seasons while being stewards of the land, the farm practices rotational grazing of herds of Jersey cows, East Friesian sheep, and Saanen and Nubian dairy goats.

Hummingbird is a fresh sheep's and cow's milk cheese with a bloomy rind.

Tasting Notes

At 1-2 weeks old, Hummingbird is mild, buttery and creamy, at 4 weeks developing more earthy aromas and a softer paste while retaining a mellow flavor. The cheese is rich, milky and herbaceous, with savory aromas of straw and mushrooms. 

Pairings

Hummingbird pairs well with dry cider, tart white wines with pronounced minerality, and wheat beers.
