A Raclette style cheese with superb melting qualities. Fruity and slightly pungent. In the Swiss and French Alps this cheese is traditionally melted atop new potatoes, toasts, and vegetables. Perfect for grilled cheese. Made by hand from our grass-fed raw cow’s milk and aged at least 3 months.

Grace Hill Farm is run by Max and Amy Breiteneicher. The vision for our farm grew naturally out of our shared interests and values – a love of good food and a desire to produce food that is delicious and made with integrity; a love of nature and of living and working closely with animals and the land; and of course, Max’s great passion for cheese. Max is blessed to have been taught cheesemaking and animal husbandry over the years by a series of true professionals at Jasper Hill Farm, Chase Hill Farm, and Sidehill Farm.
After many years of searching for just the right spot, we were so lucky to finally find it here in Cummington. Our land belonged to the Dawes/Thayer family since the 1700’s, passed down through the generations until they were so kind as to sell it to us in 2012. It has been a sheep farm and a dairy farm within living memory, and the old stone walls running through our woods attest to the pasture that used to be everywhere. We are honored to be stewards of this beautiful land, and are grateful for the opportunity to revitalize and restore this old New England farm.
Cheese is essentially preserved milk, and nearly every cheese is brought into being through roughly the same process, beginning with the milk. The vast array of cheese types are created by slight variations in the steps of this process.
