Coatesville’s Farm at Doe Run had another great showing at the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, as it won two Best in Show awards at the fifth annual Cheese Competition for its St. Malachi and Seven Sisters cheeses.
This marks the fifth consecutive win for the farm in this category.
Its St. Malachi cheese, named after a centuries-old Catholic church in Coatesville, gets its unique flavor from being aged in natural quarry stone caves. The Farm at Doe Run also won second place with its Creamery Collection Batch #1 in the Semi-Soft, Semi-Hard, Hard, Goat, Mixed category.
Meanwhile, two other Chester County farms also won awards for their cheeses.
Birchrun Hills Farm in Chester Springs took first place in the Blue-Veined Cheeses category with Birchrun Blue and first place in the Washed Rind and Smear Ripened Cheeses category with Red Cat.
For Goat’s Milk Cheeses, Yellow Springs Farm in Chester Springs took second place with its Black Diamond cheese in the Surface Ripened Cheeses category.
