Whitestone Farmhouse (or simply Farmhouse) is a soft white cheese that comes from New Zealand. Produced by Whitestone Cheese Company, this cheese was declared New Zealand’s Best Original Cheese in 2005. It is covered in penicillin rind and has a delightful lemony-grass scent with springy elasticity. When the cheese is young, it has the freshness of a sea breeze and a nutty taste that becomes more pronounced with maturity. Made from pasteurised cow’s milk coagulated with vegetarian rennet, Whitestone Farmhouse is moist and crumbly in the centre while becoming softer towards the rind. It is loaded with a fat content of 48% and is one of the top cheeses of New Zealand.
