Little Hosmer cheese
From Jasper Hill Creamery, Greensboro, Vermont
From Jasper Hill: “This cheese is named for a small pond in nearby Craftsbury, Vermont. Little Hosmer Pond is adjacent to Great Hosmer Pond, both favorite destinations for rowing, swimming, fishing, and cross-country skiing after a long day of cheesemaking. Naming this little cheese after a Northeast Kingdom gem ties out our quest for meaningful work in a place that we love.”
Little Hosmer is the perfect size for a picnic or complement to a cheeseboard. At room temperature, this cheese is pliable and decadent without being runny. Seek out a fruited wheat beer, cured duck breast, and freshly baked focaccia for an elegant little spread.
From Jasper Hill: “The Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm is an innovative 22,000 square foot underground facility located in Greensboro, Vermont. The Cellars were constructed for the purpose of providing affinage, or aging expertise, as well as distribution and marketing services for local cheesemakers. At the Cellars, we ripen cheese made by Jasper Hill Creameries as well as those made by several other producers. Each cheese in our collection is made from a single herd of cows. Fresh wheels are introduced to one of seven specially calibrated vaults, where they receive customized care until perfect ripeness.”
