Prairie Breeze™ is Milton Creamery's twist on a well-aged white cheddar style cheese, aged for a minimum of 9 months, made with vegetarian rennet and no added color. It is sweeter than your typical cheddar with lots of flavor, crumbly yet creamy with a little crunch from the calcium crystals developed during the aging process. Its nutty tones and fresh canned pineapple scent distinguish it from all other cheddars and makes you want “just one more” bite of this unique cheese. It melts beautifully and is the creamery's most beloved and decorated cheese. Prairie Breeze is perfect on its own, in homemade mac and cheese or next to apple pie.
Milton Creamery is the result of a dream built in Southern Iowa – a place with rolling hills, woodlands, rivers and rich soil. A dream of doing something to help others in the agriculture world and beyond, adding value to the milk for dairy farmers, creating jobs in the local community and bringing consumers a product created with art and passion in Southern Iowa.
The Musser Family has solely owned and operated Milton Creamery since 2006. Rufus III, his wife Jane and their son Rufus IV “Junior” currently work with local Amish dairy farmers and manage the local team of nearly 30 people. The family has been committed to sourcing all of their milk from local, small dairy farms from the beginning. By local, they mean that all milk comes from 30 miles of the facility. By small, they mean that all of their dairy farmers herds are managed and milked by the immediate family and have no more than 120 animals. The farmers that provide milk to Milton Creamery do not give their cows artificial growth hormones, like rBGH and rBST.
Firmer cheeses can last in the fridge for a few weeks. Once opened, wrap in cheesepaper, aluminum foil, or store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
