An American farmhouse interpretation of the classic Alpine Raclette, Spring Brook Farm Reading is funky and savory with a nutty finish. It’s made from raw Jersey cow’s milk, and undergoes at least 3 months of washing. The result is a perfectly meltable cheese with layers of satisfying umami flavor. Pair it with a glass of white wine and sample it alongside some Trois Petits Cornichons or melt it with a Barbeclette and serve it atop fresh grilled peaches.

“The first time I had Reading melted, I really GOT this cheese. What I love about Reading is that its flavor is slightly different each time you have it. I especially love when I end up with a super peanutty one.”

  • Drawing upon centuries of cheesemaking, Spring Brook Farm Reading cheese is possibly the most traditional Raclette produced in the United States.
  • Evidence suggests the renowned Alpine Raclette cheese dates back to the 1300s.
  • Raw, Jersey cow’s milk is transformed into these smooth dense wheels.
  • After at least 3 months of washing, Reading delivers layers of rich umami flavors including salty, meaty, and oniony notes nestled into a firm yet silky paste.
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.
