Thanksgiving Preorder: Spring Brook Farm | Reading Raclette

$29.00

Long Description

An award-winning, American artisan favorite, Reading is aged approximately three months, and is washed with a brine solution during its aging process. The result is a unique creamy texture balanced by nutty, grassy undertones found closer to the rind (the rind tastes like peanuts!). While this versatile, semi-firm cheese is ideally suited to melting, it exhibits a subtle yet complex flavor profile that allows it to stand alone on any cheese plate.

About the Producer

Located on Spring Brook Farm in Reading, VT; they have been making cheese since 2007. They began with Tarentaise, an alpine mountain cheese, using cheesemaking methods that are traditional to the Beaufort Region of France. From there they developed our American Raclette: Reading and Ashbrook: their ode to the French Morbier.

They knew from the beginning that the key to making great cheese was great milk. As a subsidiary of the Farms for City Kids Foundation, Spring Brook Farm is a traditional dairy farm that covers 1,000 acres and maintains a herd of 100 registered Jersey. It is an educational farm, and the cows are closely monitored, loved and cared for. This attention to the cows and milk production gave them their parameters for milk standards. Since then, they have partnered with two other small family dairy farms in their region who provide the same level of care to their Jerseys and milk production.

Serving Suggestions

Pair Reading with fresh or roasted pears, dark chocolate, or prosciutto. Raclette is often melted over boiled potatoes and enjoyed with charcuterie and cornichons.

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

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

Spring Goat

I wanted to love this Spring Mother’s Day Cheese Gift Box so much. It arrived ready to be served. It was no longer cold and the box was extremely fragrant. Disappointed that the selection was three goat cheeses. Would have preferred an assortment; cow, sheep, blue, etc. I will give it a go one more time.

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.
