Clover Creek Cheese Cellar Tussey Mountain Emmentaler SwissClover Creek Cheese Cellar
Our aged Emmenthaler swiss style.
Tussey Mountain is our twist on an aged Emmenthaler Swiss. We named it in honor of the large mountain we see in front of our farm every day. It is drier and saltier than some of our other cheeses and at times lacks the traditional Swiss holes or-eyes.
For a blind cheese, it has a great buttery Swiss flavor. We love the way it melts for fondue or on top of Sweet sandwiches.
Ingredients: Cultured raw milk, salt and rennet.
Weight may vary slightly.

In the early 1990s, Dave, Terry, and one-year-old Anthony Rice moved to a beautiful farm in Blair County's Morrison's Cove Valley. They named the farm "Ojala" which in Spanish interprets to "may God grant you the desires of your heart."
In a few years they changed their farm from a conventional feeding system to a grazing farm which more aptly reflected their passion for a good healthy life. A grazing system allowed them to form a symbiotic relationship which would mutually benefit their cows and the land. Grass-fed and pasture-raised cows are known to give a higher-quality and better-tasting milk. In 2005, the Rice family decided to start Clover Creek Cheese Cellar so they could turn Ojala Farm's milk into delicious artisan cheese. Since Clover Creek flows lazily through the pastures and fields of Ojala Farm it was the perfect choice. In 2007 they built their own cheese creamery and cheese production began.
Over 10 years later, the Rice family continues to raise their herd of Milking Shorthorns, Jerseys, Ayrshires, and crossbred cows on healthy green pastures. Some of their grass-fed raw milk is bottled to sell on the farm, in farmers markets, and in stores throughout Pennsylvania. The remainder of their milk is naturally transformed into award winning farmstead artisan cheeses. The Rices are continually improving their process to make every batch of cheese more delicious than the last so that you can taste and enjoy the farm fresh flavor of Clover Creek Cheese Cellar cheese. All of their cheeses begin with all natural ingredients including cultured raw milk, salt, rennet and an array of additional herbs, vegetables, and wine.
