Mani-Pedi Day on the Farm: Hoof Care for our Herd

You know how it goes. If your feet hurt, your whole body hurts. Healthy feet give us a foundation to walk on. Cows feel the same way, so we have a professional hoof trimmer who visits the farm every other month to care for our cows’ hooves. This is very important because, like human fingernails, […]

Baked Potato

Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Conebella Farm Cheddar

What would a baked potato be without cheddar cheese?  Or scalloped potatoes without those delicious crispy bits of cheese and potato that you’re determined to pry off the side of the casserole dish?  And then there’s those cheese fries you sneak at the country fair, or the homemade potato bread topped with cheddar…. Yes, what […]

Curry-Cheddar Coleslaw from the Kitchen of Brandon Hertzler

Coleslaw often gets sidelined.  Choosing it as your side at a restaurant earns you a few tablespoons of slaw in a flimsy plastic cup.  Coleslaw deserves so much more, and recently Conebella Farm Cheese customer Brandon Hertzler used Conebella Farm Sharp Cheddar to elevate this cabbage salad.  He created a spicy, colorful and flavorful dish […]

Stuffed Peppers with Conebella Farm Smoked Cheddar

Cajun Cheddar Chicken Pasta

Spicy, Delicious Cajun Cheddar Chicken Pasta in 15 Minutes

Once a person has been cooking for a while, there are certain meals that become that cook’s trademark.  A friend who lived down the street from me made the most amazing slow-cooked beef burritos.  My grandma made mac & cheese nobody else could replicate.  My sister makes homemade gnocchi served with spaghetti sauce she cans […]
