Nestled in the Tennessee wilderness, the 300-acre Sequatchie Cove Farm is home to more than 50 Jersey and Jersey-Holstein cows who spend their days on lush pasture that is carefully managed to ensure the animals' health. The herd provides the milk for the creamery's array of raw milk cheeses, which take their cue from cheeses made in the Savoie region of France.
Cumberland is a simple, natural-rinded wheel inspired by the French Tomme de Savoie. Its flavors range from butter and earth to grass and citrus. A versatile cheese, it is suitable for both cooking and on a cheese board alongside fresh fruits, meats, preserves and pickles.
