Farms for City Kids Foundation is a program that brings students from nearby cities, most of whom have never had the chance to travel, up to the farm in southwestern Vermont to spend time helping with farm chores while learning. The farm also produces cheese which helps support the foundation. Cheesemaker, Jeremy Stephenson crafts Reading in a raclette style, so it also is an excellent melting cheese. The flavors cheese are buttery and nutty, and the texture is smooth. The cheese is washed with brine which contributes some funkiness. Reading is cheese we can't get enough of, and we love the idea that when we buy it, we are supporting a farm that contributes to the lives of kids.
