Charlotty, a soft-ripened cheese with a lemony twang, from Shy Brothers Farm in Westport, MA. Named in honor of Carlotty White, a local hero who exemplified the best of the Westport, MA community. “Born during the Revolutionary War, Charlotty was the child of a freed slave and a Native American and became the area’s healer and midwife for decades. Charlotty took in and treated poor or trouble people. Her name invokes a spirit that was courageous, complex and all-embracing.
The Shy Brothers Farm cheesemakers felt her name was a natural choice for this cheese, as it is made of simple healthy ingredients and offers a complex flavor that embraces your taste buds like nothing else.
