Among rolling the green hills, clear blue skies, and fresh air of western Massachusetts, the goats and cows of Westfield Farm graze and frolic. Debbie and Bob Stetson left their previous careers as shipping professionals and took over the farm, where cheese was already being made, from Letty and Bob Kilmoyer. After one month of rigorous training, the Stetsons stepped into the Kilmoyers' shoes and proceeded to carry on the tradition of producing artisanal, hand-made cheeses.
Coated in a cashmere shawl of soft grey Roquefort mold, the Classic Blue Log is a tangy cylinder of semi-soft goat cheese. Under the intense rind, the cheese is fresh, clean, and creamy.
