Full-bodied and creamy, Beehive Cheese Co.'s artisan cow's milk cheeses are as delicious as they are unique--from the Utah original Barely Buzzed to the spicy Big John's Cajun and from the savory/slightly-sweet Smoked Apple Walnut to the tenacious Teahive. A family-run business founded by brothers-in-law Pat Ford and Tim Welsh in 2005, Beehive makes wheels of cheese that are hand-rubbed to perfection and that garner numerous national awards yearly. Here in Utah, though, it's simply the gold standard.
"We consider our creamery a modern cheese operation where old-world craftsmanship is embraced," says Beehive's website. Both Ford and Welsh live within walking distance of the creamery in Uintah, Utah. It's not uncommon to see their family working and playing there. All of the milk comes Wade’s Dairy, a fourth generation family dairy that's owned and operated by Clint and Tara Wade and is located a mere 10 miles from Beehive Cheese. These are all company values we can get behind.
Beehive's cheeses are intricate and interesting to read about. Learn about the ingredients, rubs and tasting notes on Beehive Cheese's website.
