The Sierra Nevada Cheese Company has launched a new line of Graziers Cheeses, including Natural Raw Cheddar, Natural Raw Sharp Cheddar, Natural Raw Mozzarella, Natural Raw Jack, and Natural Raw Jalapeno Jack. These natural raw cheeses are made from Graziers Certified grass-fed cow milk.
"We are proud to be part of the new line of cheese we call Graziers," said Ben Gregersen, Co-Owner of Sierra Nevada Cheese. "Our neighboring dairy farms that subscribe to the alternative farming practice of intensive rotational grazing are truly the ones to be recognized for this wonderful line of cheese."
The company’s Graziers certified farmers are located in Northern California where the growing season is long and the climate is ideal for grazing, allowing the cows to be on pasture for more than 300 days of the year.
"Our 'Graziers' commitment to the wellbeing of their animals and environmental stewardship is adherent to the foundation of a successful farming business, as much a way of life for the small family farm," Gregersen said. "Their dedication to producing consistent, premium milk in such a sustainable manor deserves a value added premium and we do just that."
The rotational grazing system used by the company’s farmers significantly reduces production costs, increasing profitability which allows Graziers family farms to truly thrive. In addition to the Graziers certification program being healthier for the cow and better for the environment, Graziers cheeses are healthier for consumers.
Grass fed dairy products are up to four times higher and a great source of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA's), balanced Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, Vitamins and Minerals.
"As a cheesemaker, I love working with the consistent and high quality milk we receive from our Graziers," said John Dundon, Co-Owner of Sierra Nevada Cheese. "You can taste the difference in the cheese!"
