What is farmer's cheese? True to its name, farmer's cheese began as a simple cheese made in a farmhouse. (So did pretty much all cheeses, actually.) What's known as “farmer's cheese” varies worldwide from fresh/soft to semi-soft; in America it tends to be pressed cottage cheese (unripened curds). Wisconsin Farmer's Cheese is similar to Havarti, but typically lower in fat. It has a smooth, supple texture with a buttery, slightly acidic flavor.
