This farmstead cheese from the Tennessee mountains is exceedingly lovely, and will appeal to most cheese eater's tastes.
A mild 'farmhouse style' cheese, Cumberland is a firm cheese, buttery and smooth with notes of buttermilk. It has the aroma of hay and dried leaves, representing the mountain farm in Tennessee where it's made. It's truly an artisanal cheese, made by hand with traditional methods from raw milk, which creates more complex flavors.
This is essentially a 'table cheese' meant to be easily enjoyed for any occasion, and easy to pair, cook, or serve. Try with pears, nuts, or fruit preserves. It's wonderful with a dry white wine.
We hand-cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedge of 1 pound and 8 ounces. You can also purchase the entire wheel of approx. 4 pounds.
