April Specials 2019
April, we never thought you’d come! Celebrate spring with your favorites like Delice de Bourgogne, lemony Cana de Cabra, and Marieke Aged Gouda. We love these cheeses with Effie’s Oakcakes, Nutcakes, Corncakes, and Cocoacakes – seriously, the best biscuits ever.
Delice de Bourgogne
Sale: $14.99 /lb (Regular: $18.99)
This is a triple cream (75% butterfat) cheese with soft, white, bloomy rind, decadently rich and buttery, with a just hint of tanginess. Excellent with sparkling wines, fresh berries, honey, and almonds.
Sale: $28.99/lb (Regular: 32.99)
Harbison is quite a unique cheese. It is fashioned after the famous Vacherin Mont d’Or, but instead of washing the rind, the cheesemakers made the rind bloomy like a Brie. The taste of this cheese is layered. The cream is subtly sweet, with woodsy earthy notes that hint at mustard greens and caramelized onions.
Marieke Aged Gouda
Sale: $15.99 /lb (Regular 19.99)
From cheesemaker Marieke Penterman in Thorpe, WI, this 18-24 month aged gouda is one of our best selling, local, farmstead cheeses. Sweet and nutty, with a butterscotch finish.
Cana di Cabra
Sale: $11.99 each (Regular: 15.99)
Resembling a French Bucheron, this softripened goat’s milk cheese hails from Murcia, an orchard-thick, mountainous region of southeastern Spain. Cana de Cabra is creamy and mild, with tangy citrus notes.
Northern Lights Blue
Sale: $14.99 /lb (Regular 17.99)
Northern Lights is a hand-crafted blue made by long-time cheese maker Joe Sherman. Joe uses milk from Brown Swiss cows that pasture near his home in Plato, MN, producing a full flavored blue with a buttermilk tang and salty finish.
Sale: $16.99/lb (Regular 20.99)
Created over 4,000 years ago, Ossau-Iraty is one of the first cheeses ever made, and was once believed to have been a gift from the Greek god Apollo. Complex and luscious, with notes of roasted nuts, caramel, and wild flowers.
