Gouda

2017-04-03T12:15:26-04:00

Named after the Dutch city it came from, Gouda varies greatly with age.  Young gouda is typically consumed as a sandwich topping or snack, but aged gouda moves from a semi-hard to a hard cheese, as it develops crystals and caramel-like overtones.

 Young cheese (4 weeks)
Young matured (8–10 weeks)
Matured (16–18 weeks)
Extra matured (7–8 months)
Old cheese (10–12 months)
Very old cheese (12 months and more)

 Serve with sliced apples and a light-bodied beer or a crisp white wine.

Tarentaise

2019-05-31T14:07:44-04:00

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%)!
