Goshen, New York
Located just 57 miles north of New York City, 5 Spoke Creamery creates its artisanal cheeses basing everything on their unifying bicycle theme. Similarly to bicycling, where you are able to observe everything around you, everything at 5 Spoke is made by hand in small batches so they can see and react to every-thing happening in front of them. Only raw milk is used from the grass-fed Holstein cows that are free from pesticides and hormones. Milking occurs at 4am, and cheesemaking at 9am, so you can be assured that this is only the freshest milk that has nowhere to travel. All cheeses are handmade in a farmstead tradition, creating cheeses that will keep your customers coming back for more.
This cheese is a cross between an aged cheddar and a Cantal Fermier. It is cave-aged for 14 months resulting in a bold and tangy cheese that is well balanced with a slightly sweet finish.
