2012 Cheeses are Coming Soon!

Our Artisan Farmstead Cheeses: Cumberland and Coppinger

Cumberland: Simple, rustic tomme, inspired by the French “tomme de Savoie.” Aged 90 days and has a natural rind which is the mosaic of different yeasts, molds and other micro-flora that are allowed to grow wild. This process is a lot like growing a garden in that what grows on the cheese is a reflection of what is in the milk, almost like soil. Some of these organisms are inoculated and some are wild, but they are all allowed to express themselves and all contribute to the character of this cheese. Therefore, the character of the tomme will change as the milk changes throughout the year and the changing of the seasons. The flavor is buttery and earthy with a tangy grassy note, and hints of macadamia nut. It is named for the Cumberland Plateau, which envelops the farm on three sides.

Coppinger: Washed rind cheese, inspired by French Morbier and Raclette. Aged 120 days and washed with the house morge (cocktail of selected cultures and brine) on a regular basis throughout the ripening period. Its flavor is balanced, often with sweet & nutty overtones and a smooth, supple texture. It’s made exclusively with raw cow’s milk produced at Sequatchie Cove Farm, which is located in Coppinger Cove, from which it gets it’s name. This cheese is still a work in progress, and each batch will vary slightly, as we are still developing the final product. In fact, the feedback we get from customers who taste this cheese will significantly affect the direction we take with perfecting Coppinger over the next year. Tasting cheese is an exploratory experience and we are excited to share this cheese in its developmental stage.

Sequatchie Cove is going SOLAR!

Check out photos of our progress here! By the end of January we should have our new solar system up & running at the Creamery. Many thanks to Harvey Abouelata and all the great folks at Efficient Energy of Tennessee in Powell, TN, and especially to Jeff Cannon and the amazing staff at GreenSpaces in Chattanooga for their role in making this possible!

This project was made possible in part by a solar installation grant from The Tennessee Solar Institute. The Tennessee Solar Institute is part of the Volunteer State Solar Initiative, a comprehensive solar energy and economic development program that was established using $62.5 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funding received by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development through the Department of Energy.
