Soft-ripened, geo-rind gem. Fluffy, tangy, with a spreadable, light but slightly fudgy texture. Perfectly suited to occupy the most difficult spot on a cheese board, complex and unique, but not heavy on the palate.

Bent River Camembert

Camembert-style Bent River is Alemar's flagship cheese. Named after the sharp turn of the Minnesota just a few hundred yards from their original production site, it is released at roughly five weeks. Over the next seven weeks or so, the cheese will ripen to full maturity. During that time, the texture and flavor profile will change, but at all stages you'll have a Camembert that will rival the best around.

St. James

This Tomme-style cheese is great for the whole family and enjoyable in many applications. Firm, but not hard in texture. Flavorful, but not overwhelming in flavor. Grate, shred, or melt into pastas, salads, eggs, potatos, and anywhere else. Excellent on any cheese plate, or just as a snack!
