This 30 pound raw cow's milk Alpine-style cheese made by Spring Brook Farm in Vermont and aged in Brooklyn. It is handmade in a traditional copper vat and washed in brine for one year to encourage the development of beneficial microflora. Crack into one of these big ladies and prepare to be enveloped in her Pina Colada aroma. Tubby’s taste is bright yet brothy with a rind like crunchy peanut butter. Tubby is named for one of Brooklyn’s prominent 19th century architects, William Bunker Tubby.

Raw Cow's Milk

Crown Finish Caves

Thirty feet below the street, Crown Finish Caves’ facility was originally designed for fermenting beer. With an average year-round temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit, the caves also happened to provide the perfect environment for aging cheese! They receive "green cheese", or young cheese that hasn't developed a rind yet, coming from local artisan producers (as well as from one as far away as Italy,) then it is aged to perfection. The main tunnel is almost full and holds a whopping 28,000 pounds of cheese.
