Sprout Creek Farm is a center for education, farming, community building and spiritual growth. It is a place of work, of peace, intellectual inquiry and experiential learning. It is home to a community of people, plants and animals; farmland, forest, streams and ponds, of wetlands and hedgegrows, hills and rocky soils. They are a productive farm where we make cheese from the milk produced by our cows and goats.
Their cheeses are made from the nutritious and creamy (antibiotic and hormone free) milk of our small herds of cows and goats that roam the pastures eating what they're supposed to eat – grass. Cheeses aged over 60 days are made with raw milk – bigger flavor and very nutritious. Those tender and fresh cheeses aged less than 60 days are made with pasteurized milk. The operative word here is GRASS, however.Milk from animals that eat what they were designed to eat is nutrient rich, low in cholesterol, high in Omega 3s, and still retains proteins, minerals and vitamins necessary for good health. From the much loved pastured animals to the cheeses lovingly crafted and aged, you are sure to "Taste the Difference a Little Grass Makes".
Semi-soft and washed-rind cheeses batch 35. This savory smear-ripened raw cows' milk cheese with a full scattering of eyes has an aromatic soft yellow paste, and a crisp coppery rind. Aged 2-4 months.
