Tumbleweed is a cross between the classic French cheese Cantal by Le Salers and aged Cheddar. This semi-hard cheese shows its true form after eight to nine months in the caves of 5 Spoke Creamery. While other cheeses promise the trademark Cantal flavor - Tumbleweed actually delivers. It's delicately fruity, with that unique curdy texture. The finish pulls in cheddar-like creaminess and brothy, brown butter aromas.
Great cheese starts with great milk. At 5 Spoke Creamery (based in Port Chester, N.Y) all of their cheeses are hand made in the farmstead tradition (produced on site with a closed herd) from the raw milk of grass-fed cows. Their milk comes from Holstein cows that are free of pesticides and hormones. Raw milk from a grass-fed cow has a depth of flavor-or terroir-that cannot be duplicated.
5 Spoke Creamery's raw milk cheeses offer numerous health benefits. Their raw milk cheeses, all aged a minimum of 60 days, promote easier digestion and better calcium absorption; contribute to a stronger immune system; aid in combating allergies; are high in conjugated linoleic acid - the most potent cancer fighter and contain a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
