The texture is creamy, soft, and moist. Our Mozzarella di Bufala comes in various sizes and goes well in antipasti dishes and a caprese salad.

Abbey Farms Five Territories is an amazing combination of five different British cheeses that are layered on top of one another to create a one of a kind cheese.

Old Quebec Reserve Cheddar
Made in Quebec, Canada, Old Quebec Vintage Cheddar is matured for 9-12 months, then graded on the basis of texture, flavor, aroma, and color. Cheeses that meet the target profile are set aside and transferred to Lancaster County in Pennsylvania for further maturation. The crunchy texture is a result of crystallized amino acids with flavors that are robust, clean and fruity with notes of butterscotch and an assertive tang.

Leelanau Raclette is a semi-soft washed-rind cheese with a distinct nutty and buttery flavor. Aged for 2-4 months, made with single-source cow’s milk farmed in Northwest Michigan. “Racler,” the French word meaning, “to scrape,” hints at the European tradition for serving this Alpine-style cheese; Raclette is commonly melted under a grill and then scraped over boiled new potatoes and served with a side of cornichon sour gherkin pickles.
