Care of your cheese
Cheese that is made in the traditional methods of cheese making never stop aging. Just like you. Sorry. But aging can be graceful, so here is what you need to know and do for your cheeses once you've opened them.

Cheese likes air, but also needs protection.

To serve: let your cheese warm to room temperature before serving. Place your cheese still wrapped on a board and open the packaging just before serving. Save the wrapping.

To store: Use the original cheese wrap if possible. If not, wrap each cheese separately in wax paper and place in a baggie. The wax paper will allow it to breathe the remaining air in the bag but not dry out. Then refrigerate to retard ripening.

Aged and firm cheeses will last longer, more than 3 weeks, if wrapped as suggested. Tender and fragile cheeses (Rita and Sophie) will last only a couple of weeks in your fridge and are better consumed sooner. Left undisturbed, they will last just a couple of weeks, so use them first.

If you find blue or white mold growing on your cheese after a while, just shave it off and continue eating. It's only aging.
Where can I get this award winning cheese?
Sprout Creek Farm makes between 30 and 40 thousand pounds of beautiful cheese per year. Some cheeses are made seasonally and some year round. Check our product list for descriptions and general seasonal availability.

Our cheeses can be found in many places across the US ranging from small cheese and gourmet food shops and on menus throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City, to large cheese stores such as Murray's in NYC, all Whole Foods stores in NYC and the Northeast Region and Whole Foods in New England. The following distributors carry our cheeses: Seacrest, Baldor's, Food Matters, and Vermont International Provisions.

The BEST place to find our cheese is right here at the farm. Please also see our on-line ordering scheme! You can do it simply by clicking on the options available to you. We ship cheese nationally as well as locally, Monday-Thursday every week throughout the year using UPS as our trusted carrier.

    COME TO SPROUT CREEK FARM IN THE BEAUTIFUL HUDSON RIVER VALLEY
    You've come to a real working farm when you come to Sprout Creek Farm. Feel free to take a walk around and see the animals, and by all means, come into our Market and taste our many award winning Artisan cheeses made here on the premises. You can even observe cheeses being made while you're here.

    Our 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".
