In May 2010, Spring Brook Farms produced their first wheels of Reading, an outstanding Vermont artisan raclette-style cheese made with raw Jersey cow milk. The milk is sourced from their two neighboring, family-run partner dairies.

Reading is aged approximately three months, receiving the same care and nurturing given to all of their cheeses. It offers a unique creamy texture balanced by nutty, grassy undertones. It matures into a versatile semi-soft cheese ideally suited to melting, but it exhibits a subtle yet complex flavor profile that allows it to stand alone on any cheese plate.

Spring Brook Farm is a traditional dairy farm located in Reading, Vermont. It covers 1,000 acres and is home not only to their herd of 100 registered Jersey cows but also to the Spring Brook Farm Cheese operation. Their purpose is to build and support a community that embraces the land that sustains us, from our unique microbial environment to the cows that provide the highest quality milk for cheese production; and from their partnerships with two traditional, small local Vermont dairies to support the ongoing mission of the Farms for City Kids Foundation.

What’s the best way to store my cheese?
The best way to keep cheese fresh is to store it in the vegetable crisper in your fridge. Before doing so, wrap in parchment or wax paper, then wrap loosely in plastic wrap. You can also buy our exclusive cheese storage bags, specially created to keep your cheese fresher, longer.

Unless used for cooking, we don’t recommend storing cheese in the freezer as this will alter its texture.

What is the best temperature to serve my cheese?
Remove cheese from the fridge an hour before serving, as cheese is best experienced at room temperature to enjoy the full spectrum of flavors.

How long will my cheese stay fresh in the refrigerator?
The length of time cheeses last in the fridge after opening depends largely on the type of cheese. Soft varieties tend to spoil more quickly than hard varieties. Please refer to the table below for a convenient reference:

How We Ship

FreshWave Packaging

Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality. 

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.

Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
