5 Spoke Creamery makes superior tasting, small batch raw milk cheeses (that happen to be kosher). 5 Spoke Creamery’s cheeses are not only creamier and more flavorful than those made from pasteurized milk, they offer numerous health benefits that are inherent to raw milk. That’s because raw milk cheeses have all the good bacteria found naturally in milk and none of the bad.
Great cheese starts with great milk. At 5 Spoke Creamery all of their cheeses are hand made in the farmstead tradition (produced on site with a closed herd) from the raw milk of grass-fed cows. Their milk comes from Holstein cows that are free of pesticides and hormones. They milk the cows at 4:00 A.M. and make the cheese at 9:00 A.M.
