All the cheeses made at Mountain Lodge Farm are named after volcanoes, including the Tipsoo, which met with such positive reception that the farm has decided to extend its season. It’s a pasteurized, semi-soft cheese made with goat and Jersey cow’s milk. The rind is washed with hard cider from Rockridge Orchards, and the cheese is left to age to perfection. Funky in smell but mild and spreadable, the Tipsoo is a gateway cheese for washed-rind varieties, and can be found at cheese shops around Seattle including The Calf & Kid.
