Thistle Hill Farm Tarentaise is an aged alpine raw milk cheese handmade on the Putnam family farm in North Pomfret, Vermont, from the certified organic milk of their grass-fed Jersey cows. The cheese is made in the tradition of the Tarentaise Valley in the Savoie region of the French Alps. Tarentaise cheese is made with a copper vat using traditional methods reserved for the finest cheeses in the world. This unique cheese is smooth textured, subtly nut-flavored and naturally rinded. It is ideal both for the table and for melting.
