Pleasant Ridge Reserve - Uplands Cheese
Raw cow's milk. Traditional rennet. 8oz
In the tradition of alpage cheeses like Gruyere or Beaufort, wheels of Pleasant Ridge Reserve are only made when their cows are grazing on pasture. Milk comes from their own small mixed herd, which produces milk that is specifically ideal for this cheese. Flavors of these wheels are a reflection of the farm at Uplands - they can be deeply savory and brothy, with a nutty sweetness.

 

Sogn - Shepherd's Way Farm
Pasteurized sheep's milk. Traditional rennet. 8oz
A semi-soft farmstead tomme made by hand, which showcases the supremely delicious and fatty sheeps' milk from Shepherd's Way. The paste is cakey and buttery. Notes of green olives and bay leaves. Fresh and complex.

 

St. Stephen - Four Fat Fowl
Pasteurized cow's milk. Traditional rennet. ~8oz
This delicious triple cream cheese is made by cheesemaker Willy Bridgham and his team at Four Fat Fowl creamery in Stephentown, NY. Their Cheeses are made from high quality, locally sourced milk and cream.  The interior texture is velvety and soft. Flavors are mild, yet rich and satisfying with earthy notes and a hint of mushrooms and grass. 

 

Harbison - Jasper Hill 
Pasteurized cow's milk. Traditional rennet. 9oz
This soft, bloomy-rinded cheese is encircled with spruce bark. Resulting flavors are savory and rich with sweet notes of wood, butter, berry and mushrooms.

 

Ray Tousey Honeycomb
8oz
Ray Tousey is a critical part of the Hudson Valley food scene. His 300 hives are responsible for pollinating most of the orchards on the east side of the Hudson River. His honey is deeply flavorful, floral and always raw!
