The Shy Brothers' farm encompasses the highest land in a peninsula between the two branches of the Westport River. The farm gets cooling breezes in the summer, even fog some days. The salt air moderates temperatures in the winter months. The cows are able to stay at pasture longer than most in the region. The brothers are careful with their animals and of course don't use any antibiotics or hormones on their milkers. The brothers control the quality of their herd, one of the secrets to great artisanal cheese!These unique cheeses start in the pasture, on our hill, in our fog and sunshine and salt air. No one can ever duplicate our cheeses because of the unique characteristics of our soil, our grasses, and our microclimate. We milk before the sun comes up each day, and that very fresh milk becomes our Hannahbells. Karl carefully pasteurizes our milk so as to protect maximum natural enzymes. We then add imported cultures and natural rennet under Karl's watchful eye at precisely the exact temperatures needed to get the creaminess he demands of the cheeses. After carefully tending the cheeses for a week, he moves them into the ripening room, where they mature for a few more days until he decides they are ready.
