La Créme de la Cave:
Three Seasonal Cheeses Fresh From the Farm…

$55 plus shipping

 
At this time of the year, our cave is busting at the seams with new arrivals! For the finest seasonal cheeses, La Créme de la Cave is your ticket to ride. This inaugural version features two cheeses from Twig Farm in Vermont – Goat Tomme and Mixed Drum, and Strawbridge from Meadowood Farms in New York State. 

Twig Farm is one of the finest cheesemakers in the US (and quite possibly the world!) Their Goat Tomme was just released for the 2014 season, and it is tasting amazing! The cheese is semi-firm, musky, grassy, and creamy with a gorgeous earthy rind. The Mixed Drum is some of the last of 2013’s production and has a sharp, bold and robust flavor that smacks of pepper, onions, and barnyard. 

Meadowood Farms is a sheep dairy located near Syracuse, New York. Their Strawbridge is a gooey, camembert-style sheeps’ milk cheese that is creamy, decadent, and nutty. One bite and we bet you’ll become a lifelong fan!

Contains approximately 1.5 lbs of cheese, serves 8-12 people.

First Sheep Cheese of the Season! 

 

We’ve been patiently waiting for these sheep to get milking… And now the long wait is finally over! Our first batch of cheese from Meadowood Farms just hit the shelves, and Ricotta Lana, the stellar sheeps’ milk ricotta from Vermont Shepherd is back! 
 
Didn’t know that sheep cheese was seasonal? Just like the first strawberries at the Green Market, the first sheep cheeses of the year show up in early June to freshen up our cheese plates with a little something new! Stop by the shop this week for a selection of sheepy goodness.

A brainy and beautiful sheeps’ milk cheese that is gooey and bursting with flavor. This first batch is strong, creamy and just a touch barnyardy

Ledyard is a leaf-wrapped beauty that is a trifecta of grape infusions from Madison County, NY. The grape leaves are harvested by cheese maker Veronica Pedraza and then soaked in an Empire Brewing Co. wheat beer called Deep Purple that is brewed with local concord grapes. The result is a yeasty and farmy little disc with a buttery and decadent texture.

A whole sheeps’ milk ricotta from Vermont Shepherd that tastes like a visit to a Tuscan shepherd’s kitchen! Rustic, sheepy, and milky sweet, this ricotta is an incredible seasonal treat. Just drizzle a touch of honey and sea salt on top, and voila – dessert (or killer crostini!) is served.
