 Delectable Farmstead Cheese
New Cheese from Parish Hill Creamery
 
Peter Dixon is (in our humble opinion) the Johnny Appleseed of the American artisan cheese world. Over his thirty year career, Peter has traveled the globe learning traditional cheesemaking recipes and teaching countless farmers (both here and abroad) how it’s done. Up until now he’s been a behind the scenes guy… the unsung hero, you might say, of some of America’s favorite fromage.
 
parish hillNow Peter and his wife Rachel have launched their own cheesemaking business, Parish Hill Creamery. We’re proud to carry their Italian-style cheeses and can’t wait to share them with you!
 
The cheeses are all made from raw milk sourced from the Elm Lea Farm, the dairy for the Putney School. The cultures are propagated in-house from one cheese make to the next, giving the cheeses a unique combination of microflora. That’s a nerdy way of saying they’re really delicious, with the kinds of nuanced flavors you can’t quite put your finger on, but fall in love with at first bite.

The Love Story Behind Saxelby’s ‘Valentine’s Dinner for Two’

The Love Story Behind Saxelby’s ‘Valentine’s Dinner for Two’
 
In 2009, Anne Saxelby met Patrick Martins, founder of Heritage Foods USA and the Heritage Radio Network. Patrick asked Anne to do a cheese-centric radio show for his fledgling internet radio station. At first, she thought ‘no way!’. After all, running a small business is an 8 day a week job. But they decided to go out for a beer and chat about it…. 
 
Four years and a wedding later, Anne and Patrick are happily married, and Saxelby Cheesemongers and Heritage Foods are united in more ways than one! Not only do both companies share the same ethos for supporting the work of small artisan food producers, this is literally the dinner that Anne and Patrick have at their house at least once a week.
