Rush Creek Reserve is the stuff cheese dreams are made of. Made in the tradition of Vacherin Mont d'Or, a famous cheese from Swiss Alps, Rush Creek is made for 8 weeks each fall, when the cows at Uplands go off pasture and begin to eat dry hay supplemented with a touch of grain. This shift in diet makes their milk especially rich and decadent. Each wheel of raw milk cheese is wrapped with a spruce bark girdle, keeping the gooey paste at bay until it hits the dinner table! The spoonable cheese, which looks like a little wheel of camembert or brie, is hearty and complex, with a wide range of flavors from creme fraiche, freshly cut grass, hazelnuts and smoked meat all making their way onto the palate. Aged for 60-75 days.
RUSH CREEK RESERVE IS A SEASONAL CHEESE. IT IS AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER THROUGH EARLY JANUARY EACH YEAR.
