Foodie Find: Green Dirt’s Winning Cheeses at the World Championship Cheese Contest

Some of the world’s best cheese is available right here in Missouri. 

During this month’s World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, Green Dirt Farm (located in Weston, Missouri, a short drive from Kansas City) came away with two award-winning cheeses.

Green Dirt Farm Sheep’s Milk Feta

The cheesemaker’s Sheep’s Milk Feta was awarded Best of Class in the semi-soft sheep milk’s cheese category, and its Aux Arcs Blended Sheep Milk Cheese placed second in the hard-mixed cheeses category. 

Green Dirt Farm Aus Arcs Blended Sheep Milk Cheese

A crumbly and salty classic, the Sheep’s Milk Feta is perfect for topping salads, soups, eggs, and more. Aux Arcs is a blend of cow and sheep’s milk, similar to gouda or gruyere cheese, that makes a great grilled-cheese sandwich or mac and cheese.

Head to the Green Dirt Farm Creamery at 1099 Welt Street in Weston to shop the farm’s award-winning cheeses, plus a selection of ice cream, sandwiches, and meat and cheese boards.
