Just In - The Oolite Cheese Company in Manti, Utah is owned and operated by husband and wife team Joel and Rachel; they are living their vision to make fine artisan cheeses uniquely suited to the climate and topography of Manti. The pair craft exclusively handmade ewe's milk cheeses.
Oolite stone is quarried from nearby canyons and was used to build the Manti temple as well as many of the original homes still standing in Sanpete County today, including Joel and Rachel's. This porous stone houses its own microorganisms that contribute to the flavor and development of the cheese. This local stone creates their uniquely local flavor.
