Our Cheeses

Great cheese starts with great milk. At 5 Spoke Creamery, all of our cheeses are hand made from the raw milk of grass-fed cows who are free of pesticides and added hormones.

Why is the milk we start with so great? Because grass-fed cows get to roam, picking and choosing from a variety of grasses, herbs, flowers and weeds. Raw milk from a grass-fed cow has a depth of flavor or terroir that cannot be duplicated.

Terroir, the French word for soil, describes the subtleties of taste that is imparted by a regional soil – the “taste of the place”. 5 Spoke Creamery cheeses’ superior taste and smooth, creamy texture reflect the climate, vegetation, soil and farm conditions along with our small-batch production techniques. We consider making cheese the “art of possibility”, what will
occur on any given day, from how the milk will taste (terrior) to how the fresh raw milk will interact with the cultures and the mysteries of the cave. We basically let nature take over and somehow after anywhere from a few months to a year or more, we’re pretty happy with the results.
