Community Supported Cheese November 2016: Dutch Knuckle

from 10.00

NOVEMBER 2016 SELECTION : DUTCH KNUCKLE

Pick up Party Date: Thursday, November 17th, 6:30pm at Cyril's.

The Basics:

Sugar House Creamery is in Upper Jay, New York- within the peaks of New York State's Adirondack Park. This is a farmstead operation milking a small herd (think less than 20) Brown Swiss cows that graze on pasture when weather permits. The creamery is small. They sell milk and cheese from a small shop on their farm and they've established a market for the remaining cheese in the large, surrounding metropolitan areas from Burlington to New York Metro and Boston. 

I only know about them because a dear and thoughtful friend (and long-time member of our cheese club) was driving around the Adirondacks with her family a couple summers ago and was so taken with their cheese that she shipped a couple wedges to me. I've been bothering the creamery ever since that first bite of Dutch Knuckle- their Appenzeller inspired umami bomb of a wheel...trying to talk them into sharing their beautiful cheese with our humble cheese club here in Portland.

Three cheers for persistence! Come and celebrate both the tenacity of small farmers who are driven to work in concert with the landscapes before them, and the advancements in transportation that afford us the opportunity to taste the fruits of their labors on the other side of the country.

Pick up Party: Thursday, November 17th. 6:30pm at Cyril's.
