Schoch Family Farmstead
They manufacture aged cheeses, such as Junipero and Farmstead Jack. Those were my favorite cheeses last week. The Junipero is a low moisture,hard cheese. It shows few eyes, crumbles with facility and it has a crunchy texture. The flavor is sweet and nutty, with mild acidity. It has an earthy, clean finish and overall sapid sensation. My taste buds love the tangy flavor of the rind. The rind is natural, edible (it’s not made out of wax).
The old style Swiss yogurt is also made with raw whole milk. It comes in glass bottles that the company collects at the market. The yogurt maintains its flavor and consistency through the whole week. It is like having a bowl of yogurt at the farm.
I like to think that their cows are the happiest herd in the world. They live eating lettuce and other greens from Salinas from their ocean view home.
They are every Sunday at the Farmer’s Market, California Ave. Palo Alto, CA.
