THE BIG CHEESE 2/12!
Spring Brook Reading
Our Vermont Cheese Special of the Week
On a trip to England, proprietors Karli and Jim Hagedorn were inspired by a program that taught city kids about farming. When they arrived home, they created the Farms for City Kids Foundation. This wonderful program brings in students from nearby cities up to the farm in southwestern Vermont. Along with farming vegetables, apple orchards and a maple sugar house, cheese making was introduced as a way to financially support the foundation.
In May of 2010, Spring Brook Farm produced its first batch of Reading, an artisan Raclette style cheese. A terroir-driven cheese with a unique creamy texture balanced by nutty, grassy undertones. Reading is a versatile semi-soft cheese ideally suited for melting, yet able to stand alone on any cheese plate.
