Dairy Items

Cheeses to complete your Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board!
*New* Smoked Kashar, Parish Hill Creamery

Kashar is a Balkan-style cheese that is aged for at least 2 months. The flavor is buttery, tangy, and somewhat peppery. Vermont apple wood provides a mild smokiness to this smooth and supple cheese. 

Parish Hill Creamery is a family endeavor focused on the preservation of traditional cheesemaking culture, collaborative farming, and contribution to the overall health of our communities. Their milk is raw from the Elm lea farm, just up the road from the creamery where the cows graze pasture,  and their cheese is made by hand.

*Back in stock* Little Hosmer, Jasper Hill Farm

Little Hosmer is a Jasper Hill Creamery original, our mini version of a new world-style brie. This cheese is named for a small pond in nearby Craftsbury, Vermont, and is made with milk from local pastured herds. An approachable and nuanced soft-ripened cheese. Beneath its thin, bloomy rind lies a gooey, milky core showing a complex array of flavors at peak ripeness: cauliflower, crème fraiche, and toasted nuts. A bright, clean finish with a hint of white mushroom aroma follows the rich flavors of the paste.

Don’t forget the salami! We have both Classic Salami from Short Creek Farm and Red Wine & Garlic Salami from Vermont Salumi


Protein Items

Grass Plus Stew Beef, Boyden Farm

Perfect for a comforting fall stew!

Grass Plus is Boyden Farm’s unique feeding regimen that finishes the cows with non-GMO grain and flax to provide additional health benefits from higher Omega 3’s. The cattle are all raised on family farms in Vermont with no antibiotics ever.
