Pleasant Ridge Reserve is named after the land formation on which the Uplands Cheese farm sits. Pleasant Ridge is made in the tradition of Alpine cheeses like Gruyere and Beaufort, and like these classic cheeses, it's made only from May through October when the cows are eating fresh pasture. This grass-fed, raw milk produces flavors in the cheese that can't be replicated by "ordinary" milk.


Only milk produced from the very best pasture conditions is used to create Pleasant Ridge Reserve. This may seem like a luxury, but by using only the very best milk, the folks at Uplands Cheese ensure the uncompromising quality of their cheese.


All of Upland's cheeses are aged in ripening rooms built right into the creamery. Here, the cheeses are washed several times a week in a brine solution, which encourages the development of certain beneficial bacteria on the cheese rinds. These bacteria, along with the microflora indigenous to our raw milk, develop flavors in the cheese over time. As the cheeses age, their flavors continue to become increasingly complex and concentrated.


America's Most-Awarded Cheese

Pleasant Ridge Reserve is the most-awarded cheese in American history, having won Best of Show in the American Cheese Society's annual competition three times (2001, 2005 and 2010), and having also won the US Cheese Championships in 2003. It is the only cheese to have won Best of Show three times, and the only cheese to have ever won both of the major, national cheese competitions.
