THE STORY

Spring Brook Farm Tarentaise and Reading are both produced in Reading, Vermont from the fresh raw milk of over 40 Jersey cows. Both the semi-hard Tarentaise and the semi-soft Reading are artisanal cheeses in every sense of the word.

Farms For City Kids Foundation, Inc.

Farms For City Kids Foundation has been in operation since 1994, bringing groups of children to the farm for a week at a time to experience a farm based curriculum. Besides learning to take care of farm animals and helping with making maple syrup (in season), the educational mission also includes helping with the aging of cheeses. The cheese house is designed to allow students and visitors to view the cheese making process through windows over the make room and offers a venue for students to study economics, chemistry, microbiology, food preservation, health and nutrition. All funds from the sale of Spring Brook Farm Tarentaise and Reading go to support the Farms For City Kids Foundation.

“We are extremely proud of our Vermont made cheeses, the award winning Tarentaise and our new Reading, but we are even more proud of the work we do at Spring Brook Farm with the city kids. Their enthusiasm and sense of pride for everything they help with on the farm is priceless!” – Karli Hagedorn, Chair of the Board of Directors, Farms For City Kids Foundation
