"You have to be a romantic to invest yourself, your money, and your time in cheese.”                   ― Anthony Bourdain

Can  you hear the AMEN!   

Congratulations to all our back-to-schoolers and their parents as you begin the next great chapter in your lives!  and a Big Applause for our cheesemakers as their creative journeys continue to evolve!  Here's what new:

Capra Gia Cheese Co. has taken their talent to the next lofty level and is creating lovely aged goat cheese.  San Miguel, earthy & mushroomy; Bella Provence, Herbs de Provence; That Bloomy Goat, bloomy rind, rich buttery & mild; Pine in the Ash, aged in ash.    We remain stocked on savories, both sweet samplers: lemon, peach, cranberry and chocolate cherry, chocolate chip and cappuccino and honey fig.

Sequatchie Cove took third place at The Amercian Cheese Society (ACS) with both Dancing Fern (inspired by the raw milk Reblochon-style of France) and Shakerag Blue (encased in whisky-soaked fig leaves).  We are honored to offer both as well as Bellamy Blue (Alderwood smoked salt in rind), Nickajack, (named after the famous Nickajack Cave where Johnny Cash's life took the "right" turn, washed in hard cider, the cheese not Johnny!)  Coppinger, shown in the photo above, Morbier style and Cumberland, a raw milk tomme.

BeeHive Cheese Co.'s Barely Buzzed won yet again!!! at ACS.  It is a customer favorite and the combination of espresso & lavender never fails to jazz up a cheese plate.  You'll find Aggiano, Apple Smoked Walnut, Promontory with Rosemary and Sea Hive in our cheese case as well.

Many Fold Farms's Condor's Ruin took 1st at ACS! Ash-ripened and gorgeous!  Garrett's Ferry, buttery & ultra creamy lovey paired with our Pear Chardonnay wine gelée

Pretty Pefect's Aged Cheddar with Jalapeño & Pimento is a shop staple.  Love it on burgers, sweet potatoes, with eggs or just on a Triscuit. 

Too Busy filling out forms, packing lunches, buying school supplies???  Order a cheese plate for dinner and leave the relaxation to us!

Have a great week, everyone!!!
