Christmas Preorder: Jasper Hill Farm | Alpha Tolman Cheese

$38.00
off
We love Alpha Tolman by Jasper Hill Farm.  Made with a proprietary blend of cultures, this "Mountain Cheese" (also known as Alpine Cheese) has a similar flavor profile to Gruyère AOP and Appenzeller. 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. Alpha Tolman received a Super Gold Award at the 2012 World Cheese Awards.

About the Producer

Jasper Hill Farm is one of the leaders of the artisanal cheese movement in America. They produce finely crafted cheeses from their small herd of Ayrshire cows, and they age a variety of Vermont cheesemakers’ cheeses in their seven underground vaults. The company excels at cheese affinage, making for consistently delicious artisanal styles.

Serving Suggestions

Pair this with a robust ale, Pinot Noir, or Blake Hill Preserves French Onion Preserve. Shave onto a fennel, apple, and walnut salad. Melt it for fondue or onto a plate of fingerling potatoes, cured meat and natural sour pickles. Excellent decadent grilled cheese contender.

The Cheese Grotto is fantastic - it keeps my blocks of cheese fresher for longer periods of time, unwrapped in all their glory.

CK, Cheese Grotto Classico Owner

It really does extend the life of cheese over time. Aside from the functionality, the Cheese Grotto looks great and is easy to maintain.

Allan, Cheese Grotto Fresco Owner

The Cheese Grotto is a must have for anyone who loves cheese. Looks stunning and keeps all of your cheeses in perfect condition.

My Favorite Part Of Winter!

I look forward to this cheese every year. It is a show-stopper on any cheeseboard and its pairings-- don't even get me started! This cheese is my excuse to keep potato chips in the house. It is so good, I have to ship my parents a wheel as well each season! Cannot wait to dig into a wheel this year.

Shipping Details

Hardware

If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
