Family-owned Bellwether Farms today announces that sales of its hand-dipped Whole Milk Basket Ricotta increased by 50 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year. Thanks to this unprecedented demand, Bellwether Farms is working with its grocery partners to expand distribution of the Whole Milk Basket Ricotta and increasing availability in key regions.
As many fans of Bellwether Farms already know, delicious, authentic ricotta is one of life’s simple pleasures and is arguably the most enjoyable by itself with a spoon. Whole Milk Basket Ricotta’s smooth, creamy, pillowy-soft texture and delicate, slightly sweet flavor make for an indulgent snack, dessert, a star in a variety of savory dishes — and everything in between.
In accordance with Bellwether Farms’ motto “whole is better,” Bellwether Farms’ hand-dipped Whole Milk Basket Ricotta is made from whole, full-fat Jersey cow milk straight from healthy, happy cows. The Whole Milk Basket Ricotta is even housed in its original draining basket, another touch that harkens back to the days of artisanal cheese-production and makes it truly unique.
“We are delighted that our Whole Milk Basket Ricotta is resonating, because it’s a product we are particularly proud of,” says Liam Callahan, owner of Bellwether Farms. “We hear from folks all the time that they’ve never had ricotta as good as ours, and it makes sense. There’s nothing else quite like it on the market, and you can really taste the difference. We can’t think of a better way to head into our 35th anniversary year than to continue this great momentum into 2021.”
