Alpha Tolman is named for a philanthropic dairy farmer who built the Greensboro library in 1930. Alpha's grandfather, Enoch, was one of our town's original settlers. His namesake cheese is made in our satellite creamery, located within the Vermont Food Venture Center in Hardwick, VT - a facility designed to incubate value-added projects and enrich our agricultural economy.
Alpine cheeses like Appenzeller and Gruyere inspire the recipe for this Jasper Hill Creamery original. Alpha Tolman has a buttery, fruit & nut flavor when young, developing bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it matures. The texture is dense and pliant, easily portioned and ideal for melting.
Available by the half-pound or 1-pound wedge, or by the quarter wheel (approximately 4-5 pounds).
