No other cheeses are included in this recall.
Our Good Relationship with Hilltop Meadow Farm
Farmer Reuben spoke personally with the farmer at Hilltop Meadow Farm this week and will follow up next week. We are concerned for this farmer and the impact this situation will have on their family farm business.
We have no information that would lead us to discontinue our relationship with this organic, grass fed dairy and their family farm.
If we learn more information from Hilltop Meadow we will post updates here.
