Low fat Skim milk Cheese.
“Farmer Cheese” describes several disparate cheese varieties; here in the Midwest, it typically refers to a simple, semi-soft white cheese made from skim milk. Farmer is somewhat comparable to mild Brick, and is similar in its applications. Very mild and slightly salty, it’s a great nibbling cheese. Put a slab on some rye bread for a quick, hearty lunch, or serve with crackers alongside your favorite soup. Farmer’s skim milk base results in a low fat yield for those counting calories, so don’t be shy about enjoying this Midwestern favorite!
