Mona

Mona is a mixed milk cheese made from a blend of pasteurized sheep and cow's milk. It is one of three cheeses produced by cheesemaker Dane Huebner at the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative. Mona is aged for a minimum of six months during which it is covered in edible poly-coating to preserve moisture and control mould growth.  The cheese has a firm, pliant and somewhat moist texture with a very unique, mild and pleasant taste. As the cheese ages, the wheels become slightly drier and more crumbly.
