Jasper Hill Farm Alpha Tolman is made using traditional Alpine methods of cooking and pressing the curds during cheesemaking to achieve a tight, elastic texture and robust, complex flavors. The wheels are then washed with a cultured brine to infuse them with a funky edge. Young, smooth wheels have milky, fruit, and nut flavors, while more mature wheels are bolder and meatier with amplified butter and caramelized onion flavors, carried by a rich and crystalline texture. Serve Alpha Tolman with a simple salami like Murray’s Genoa Salami or Charlito’s Cocina Campo Seco.

“Vermont powerhouse Jasper Hill produces this raw milk Alpine-style original. Inspired by cheeses like Gruyère, Alpha Tolman is sweet and nutty when it is young and develops into a beefy and oniony profile as it ages. Like its Alpine brethren, this cheese melts perfectly in fondue or over vegetables.”

  • Original Jasper Hill cheeses like Alpha Tolman are aged in these caves, along with creations from other creameries.
  • Alpha Tolman is named for a local philanthropic dairy farmer in Jasper Hill’s community of Greensboro, VT.
  • It’s made from raw milk harvested from the Andersonville Dairy’s herd of Ayrshire cows.
  • Alpha Tolman is made in a traditional Alpine style, with pressed and cooked curds. It’s washed in a cultured brine that helps cultivate a red-orange rind and gives it a distinctly meaty flavor.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.

Located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, Jasper Hill Farm is a dairy farm with an on-site creamery where they make and age a variety of well-loved cheeses. 

The state-of-the-art Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm consist of 22,000 square-feet of underground space, where they ripen Jasper Hill Creamery cheeses as well as cheeses from other local producers. 

Their farm team cuts and bails hay during summer to dry for winter months, ensuring their cows have local feed during the harsh Vermont winters. 

Among other waste management projects, they feed leftover whey from cheesemaking to heritage breed pigs who live outside the cows’ pasture.
