Length of Share: 9 shares, distributed every other week. The first box will come with the first Half/Full Summer Share in June. The last box will come with the last Half/Full Summer Share in October. The cheese share is not available as a standalone share: it must be purchased with either a half or full summer share.
Description: Add farmstead cheese to your CSA! The Farmstead Cheese Share is made by Turnip Rock Farm’s dairy, Cosmic Wheel Creamery. Turnip Rock Farm is located in Clear Lake, WI- just down the road from two of Shared Ground owner-member farms Whetstone Farm and Cala Farm. Turnip Rock milks 10 Jersey cows seasonally and feeds them 100% grass. The cheese in the share will have been made when the cows are grazing on green grass and aged for a minimum of 60 days. Look forward to wedges of Manchego, Tomme, Grueyere, Jack, Gouda, and a few of Cosmic Wheel’s original cheeses! You will also occasionally receive fresh cheeses such as Feta, Ricotta, and Quark. The cheese is truly artisan, not mass-produced. They are offered at the price of $20 per pound to CSA members, at 1.5 pounds of cheese per bi-weekly box. Each share will contain two or more types of cheese.
