Founded in June 2001, Faribault Dairy Company is located near Faribault, Minnesota in a region renowned for its St. Peter sandstone caves.
Found only in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and northern Missouri the sandstone caves are uniquely suited as an environment for aging cheese and have been used for this purpose since December 1936, when Felix Frederickson purchased the caves and first began making blue cheese.
Fast forward to 2002 when the first vats of Amablu St Pete's Select were made in the newly renovated Faribault cheese plant.
Faribault Dairy is committed to the production of blue veined cheeses, all of which are sold under the Amablu name. Production takes place using non-GMO ingredients and heat-treated cow's milk.
St Pete's Select has a rich, smooth flavor with a pronounced piquant note.
The paste of the cheese has an attractive milk-white body with prominent blue veining.
