Prairie Rose is a mild, natural rinded Swiss-style cheese that develops eyes as it ages. However, it is not a true Alpine cheese.
It has a smooth creamy texture with an edible rind, the interior is a light golden lustre.
Prairie Rose is a seasonal cheese made only from the milk of pasture-grazed cows in the rolling hills of Southern Iowa. It is produced from May to September.
Prairie Rose is produced in small wheels, from ten to fifteen pounds. Then aged a minimum of ten weeks before releasing it for distribution.
Try it in a Fondue or on a hot Ham and Cheese sandwich.
Many people that don't care for Swiss cheese find the Prairie Rose very pleasant.
