Jacobs and Brichford is located on a family farm in the Whitewater River Valley in southeast Indiana. Their cheeses are made from the milk of their own grass-fed Jersey, Normande and Tarentaise cross cows. The dairy operates seasonally, and the cows are rotated through fresh pastures each day.
Modeled after the cheeses of southeastern France, Adair has a thin, orangey-yellow rind that is velvety soft. The cheese has a slightly lactic flavor, and a sweet and earthy finish -- the result of the cows' all-grass diet.
