About Keswick

The Jersey cows at Keswick Creamery have a beautiful view of the Cumberland County from their pasture in Newburg. If you didn’t know, Jerseys are the smaller brown cows with Bette Davis eyes.

 For more than 40 years, the family has cared for their herd of registered Jersey cows using organic and humane animal care practices. The family made the choice to adopt organic practices on their farm nearly 30 years ago; herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not used on the farm. The cows graze freely on pasture during the growing season and have a supply of dried hay during the winter months. Rotational grazing, alternating between several fields, protects the health of the soil and grass while ensuring the cows get the nutrients they need. 

 In 2001, the family started making aged raw milk cheeses in an on-farm cheese plant. All their cheeses are handmade using traditional, time-honored methods and the simple ingredients of fresh milk, live cultures, traditional calf rennet and salt.

Keswick’s Cheese In Our Case

Keswick's Creamery Vermeer

Vermeer

Style: Semi-Hard natural Rind

This Dutch-style cheese introduces the creaminess of young Gouda to the nuttiness of an alpine Emmentaler. The funk from the grass-fed Jersey milk expresses itself with hints of meaty beef broth. Johannes Vermeer would want to capture this cheese on canvas because this simple beauty brings big flavor to everyday meals.

Try this smooth melter in soup, sauces and sandwiches. It pairs nicely with a wheat beer (try Trӧegs Dream Weaver) or a barley wine (Weyerbacher’s Blithering Idiot).

Keswick's Creamery - Brie Cheese

Brie

Style: Fresh Semi-Soft Bloomy Rind

 

These small white wheels of brie weigh in at around a 1/3 of a pound. Small but mighty, it’s a perfect celebration cheese for you and a few friends! Or skip the sharing and keep it for yourself. No judgement here. The soft, velvety rind brings hints of mushroom to cut through the pure creaminess of the core.

Try this Brie melted over a chicken sandwich with a smear of peach or fig jam. Pairs well with a white wine like Chardonnay.

Keswick's Creamery - Cheese Curds

Fresh Curds

Style: Fresh Semi-Hard Rindless

Fresh cheese curds are appreciated more for their texture than the fresh, cream flavor. Curds are best consumed 2-3 days after being made and should feel squeaky in your mouth. If you miss that window, these babies melt and bubble beautifully on pizza or in a grilled cheese.
