Moolicious Blue

Seana Doughty grew up in Southern California, where the only cheeses in her childhood home were Velveeta & Kraft singles, along with the occasional commodity block cheddar. However, food had always been a passion. In 2008, she made a life-changing decision to quit her desk job and immerse herself in the world of cheese, first as a cheesemonger in Southern California. She soon opened her own creamery, Bleating Heart, and began making sheep's milk cheese in the cooler climate of the Northern California coast.

Moolicious Blue is one of Bleating Heart's first cow's milk cheeses. The creamery has struck up a unique partnership with the Marshall Home Ranch and Dairy which, after an ambitious and successful crowd-funding campaign, has begun raising sheep and cows on the same property where Bleating Heart is located. On the milder end of the blue spectrum, the natural-rinded Moolicious has a rich, firm texture and flavors of grass and earth.
