Harvest Moon, by 5 Spoke Creamery, is a rich, round, raw milk cheese with a moonscape-like outer rind and an interior the orange hue of autumnal leaves  A New York "homage" to Mimolette, the iconic French cheese, Harvest Moon has butterscotch notes that become more pronounced with age.

  • We will freshly slice an approximately 8-ounce (half-pound) order for you.
  • A semi-hard cow's milk cheese inspired by French Mimolette or Dutch Edam.
  • Subtle yet addictive butterscotch sweetness.
  • Try pairing with a fruity and acidic Italian red wine, or a rich Stout ale.
  • Made at the creamery's upstate farm in Goshen, NY.

For 5 Spoke Creamery, the genesis for Harvest Moon was the 2013 FDA ban on the French cheese Mimolette. They wanted to make sure that American cheese lovers could still get to enjoy the sweet and slightly tangy taste of arguably the strangest looking ball of cheese. 


They sourced their cheese molds from France, and searched for recipes as the jumping off point for their own raw milk, American made mimolette-style cheese – Harvest Moon.  A rich, round cheese with a moonscape-like outer rind and an interior the bright orange hue of autumnal leaves, Harvest Moon has a hint of sweetness and butterscotch notes that become more pronounced as it ages. 


Harvest Moon is aged in 5 Spoke Creamery's underground cave at least 9 months; like all great cage ripen cheeses, Harvest Moon’s flavors and textures continue to evolve, making it an interesting cheese to experience at all different life stages.


The cheesemakers at 5 Spoke have a philosophy of balance; their cow’s milk cheese offers the flavor of fine cheese and the health benefits of raw milk.  Production takes place on-site in a restored barn and farmhouse in Goshen, NY, only 57 miles out of NYC.  Because of seasonal changes and availability of grasses and wildflowers, their pasture-fed cows’ diets are fresh and diverse, resulting in flavor profiles that cannot be manufactured or duplicated.


All of 5 Spoke Creamery's cheeses are hand made in the farmstead tradition (produced on site with a closed herd) from the raw milk of grass-fed Holstein cows, free of pesticides and hormones.
