A French STYLE TOMME

Rich & Refined

Artisanal yet approachable, this award-winning french style raw-milk tomme cheese has been crafted with love.

With smooth buttery flavor paired with tangy notes, this versatile cheese takes you back to the good old days when quality ruled over quantity and flavor trumped convenience. Framed by a classic stony basket-weave rind, the dense semi-soft paste is a cheerful yellow that is wonderfully meltable.

Simple & Sophisticated

Aged between sixty and ninety days, our Alderney’s vibrant aromatic bouquet evokes a European sensibility complemented by an All-American attitude. On first bite, nutty and grassy notes develop on the palate slowly, crescendoing into a vibrant fruity flavor. Finishing with a hint of mushroom, this easy eating cheese is amazing alone but also makes a perfect partner.

For a sophisticated artisanal taste produced from classic, hearty and organic ingredients, try our Alderney today.

Our Process


Our Process


Start With The Best

Quality milk and artisanal cheesemaking technique is the foundation of our process. We make our Alderney from raw organic milk from our own beloved jersey cows who graze openly on clover grass and only eat the best natural ingredients. We never use antibiotics or hormones at our farm. So our Jersey cows make the best, butteriest milk that we turn into delicious curds with which we start our Alderney. 

MADE WITH LOVE

Each of our cheeses is lovingly hand-crafted under Dan's guidance. We place our Alderney into a salt brine for a full day soak. Next we age the wheels on wood boards in our cheese cave. The cave temperature is at an optimal 52 degrees with carefully monitored 90% humidity. Our Alderney ages in the cave for a minimum of 60 days where we take extra care in weekly turnings and brushing of the rind.
