Lindy Hop is a semi-soft cow's milk cheese made by Steve and Karen Getz at Dancing Cow Farm, near Bridport, Vermont. The cheese is completely organic and natural as the makers make sure their cows graze on pastures grown using no pesticides, herbicides or petroleum-based products. Since all Dancing Cow cheeses after named after dances, even Lindy Hop is christened after an American dance style.
The recipe for Lindy Hop is inspired from Fourme d'Ambert, a blue cheese made in the Auvergne region of France. Lindy Hop is a mild and rich with a creamy mouthfeel and notes of grass. It has a natural, brownish grey coloured rind with a straw yellow paste speckled with blue veins throughout.
