Full Shipping Details
Local lawyer Tapping Reeve formed the Litchfield Law School in the late 18th century, educating scores of politicians and justices who would go on to shape a fledgling nation. What better way to honor that legacy than with a cheese? Tapping Reeve is both sharp and refined, not unlike its namesake. Inspired by Colonial cheeses of the past, Tapping Reeve is aged to perfection over 2 years. The result is a unique cheese that tastes like the perfect marriage of alpine style cheeses and English Cheddar. A lovely crumbly texture yields a nice sharpness, balanced with delicate buttery notes. We love to serve this alongside apples, walnuts and a nice IPA. Tapping Reeve also pairs exceptionally well with Cider.

Dating back to 1869, The Webster Family owned a dairy farm south of Litchfield. They named the farm Arethusa for the small pink orchid that grew in a swamp on the land. In later years, they bottled milk and delivered door-to-door. In 1999 the farm on Webster Road was purchased by George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis, with the goal of saving open farmland. They made an agreement with Webster descendants to return the name "Arethusa" to the farm. In 2004 the small breed of Holsteins and Jerseys from Connecticut brings home top honors from the most prestigious dairy show in the world. Their Holstein, Melanie was named Supreme Champion of World Dairy Expo in Wisconsin. Her Jersey herd mate, Veronica was Reserve Supreme Champion. All products are made using only the milk from Arethusa’s cows, including this fabulous cheese!
