New favorite cheese

I had high hopes for this cheese being soft and creamy since it’s stated that it has a high fat content, and it delivers so well. I’m not the biggest fan of hard, dry cheeses, so this one’s definitely a new favorite. Very mild taste as long as you cut the ribs away a couple centimeters or else you’ll get an earthy/hay flavor, still amazing and delicious.

Tastes like one of the better cheeeses I have tryed. I would have like to know more details about the farm where it comes from.
