Tarentaise – Reserve

2019-05-31T14:09:47-04:00

Spring Brook Farm specializes in award-winning French Alpine-style cheeses. In 2008 we produced our first make of Tarentaise, a farmstead cheese made using fresh raw milk from our milking herd of 40 Jersey cows. It has a natural washed rind, is semi-firm in texture, and aged for a minimum of nine months. By the time our Tarentaise is ready for sale, it will have been washed and turned at least 60 times by our knowledgeable aging room staff.

Depending on the season, the flavor profile on Tarentaise can range from bright red berries and floral undertones to deeply brown butter and nutty to wonderfully savory and brothy. Tarentaise Reserve follows the same make process as Tarentaise but is allowed to age for a minimum of 18 months to produce a cheese that is even more complex in flavor. Only a small proportion of Tarentaise wheels are deemed suitable for additional aging (roughly 5%)!

Alpha Tolman

2017-03-31T15:50:20-04:00

Alpine cheeses like Appenzeller inspire the recipe for this Jasper Hill Creamery original. Alpha Tolman has a buttery, fruit & nut flavor when young, developing bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it matures. The texture is dense and pliant, easily portioned and ideal for melting.

Fondly named after our Mom who works behind the scenes but doesn’t want any recognition! Cow and goat’s milk blend, aged 3-5 month whose flavor intensifies as it ages.  Swiss style finished with Spiced Apple Cider wash.  The spiced cider flavor permeates the cheese perfectly.  Melts well.  Pairs well with sparkling wines, Merlot, pears and grapes.
