Fondly named after our Mom who works behind the scenes but doesn’t want any recognition! Cow and goat’s milk blend, aged 3-5 month whose flavor intensifies as it ages.  Swiss style finished with Spiced Apple Cider wash.  The spiced cider flavor permeates the cheese perfectly.  Melts well.  Pairs well with sparkling wines, Merlot, pears and grapes.

Suffolk Punch

2017-03-23T11:15:16-04:00

Gourd-shaped, whole milk Caciocavallo-style cheese is a classic pasta filata made by stretching lactic fermented curd in hot water to form the traditional shape. Caciocavallo – cheese on horseback, refers to the way two cheeses are tied at the ends of a long rope and then hung over a rod to age, like saddlebags thrown over the back of a horse. Our Suffolk Punch ages for at least 2 months, is rubbed with olive oil and polished during the process to create an edible rind. The interior is firm and smooth when young and becomes flaky and drier with age. The flavor is buttery, tangy, and even peppery, especially when aged more than 6 months.

Vermont Herdsman

2017-03-23T11:19:24-04:00

Whole milk cheese made in the method of Asiago Grasso Monte. VT Herdsman is made in the summertime when the cows are grazing on hillside pastures and aged for at least 9 months to develop a full, slightly sharp flavor with hints of pineapple and hazelnuts. The interior texture is smooth and becomes more granular as the cheese ages beyond 12 months. The outside is periodically scrubbed with salt brine to produce a straw colored, edible rind.
