Now Available: Spring Brook Tomme
Farm has recently been experimenting with a new Tomme-style cheese. After
a few months of test batches, they decided that they need new aging space
before they can commit to this cheese long term and suspended production.
But in the meantime, we have an exclusive opportunity to bring some of these
test batches to you. We have sampled a couple wheels here and were really
impressed by how interesting and complex this cheese tastes considering how
early it is in development. Priced to move at $7.99/lb, we think Spring
Brook Tomme represents an incredible value.
Tomme has a smooth, dense texture and flavors of toasted nuts, earth and beef
broth. There is a grassy, vegetal overtone and a long finish to the cheese. A
few of our tasters noted that it reminded them of an Alpine-style cheese. These
particular wheels are aged from 8 – 10 months and weigh in at approximately 3 ½
pounds each. Supplies are limited and samples are available, so please get in
touch with your sales representative if you would like to make a reservation.
Farm cheeses were created to support Farms for City Kids, a foundation that
brings urban youth to the farm for a week to learn the connection between the
land and our food. Its mission includes teaching children the basics of
animal rearing, cheesemaking, maple syrup production and food
preservation. All funds from the sale of these cheeses go to support
Farms for City Kids.
