Throughout history, women have played a crucial role in cheesemaking. In honor of Women’s History Month, Saxelby Cheesemongers is celebrating women in cheese – past, present, and future! This collection includes five cheeses and one box of crackers from some of the most talented women in the business, plus a Saxelby Cheesemongers branded cheese knife. Cheeses included are:
Mini Kunik – a triple-creme blend of goat’s milk and cow cream made by Sheila Flanagan and Lorraine Lambiase at Nettle Meadow Farm.
Ascutney Mountain – a golden hued cow’s milk cheese packed with flavors ranging from roasted nuts to tropical fruits made by Jeannine Kilbride at Cobb Hill Farm.
Manchester – a firm, aged goats’ milk cheese with an aroma of fresh cut grass and asparagus stalks made by Angela Miller and Leslie Goff at Consider Bardwell Farm.
Bon Pere – a fruity, nutty Manchego-style cheese made from a mixture of 80% cows’ milk and 20% goats’ milk by Anne and Susan Gervais at Boston Post Dairy.
Appalachian – a semi-firm cow’s milk cheese with a buttery, savory flavor made by mother-daughter team Helen and Kat Feete at Meadow Creek Dairy.
