New Items!

From the northern reaches of France comes the origin of VT Farmstead’s Coulommiers-style cheese and thicker ancestor to Brie, and the name itself, Lillé. Handmade in small batches, each wheel is a slightly different weight. Aged in its own special room, and lovingly turned regularly, the delicate rind develops evenly with a white downy bloom. This decadently sumptuous soft-ripened cheese has a supple paste core enveloped by a rich creamy body and reveals a subtle mushroom nuance with notes of nut and butter. The rind gives a nice salty bite versus the delicate interior.

Enjoy Green Mountain Creamery Vermont-style Maple, Vanilla, or Blueberry Greek Nonfat yogurt this week! Each spoonful is a deliciously smooth and creamy treat with live probiotic cultures and no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. 

The rich flavor of summer’s fresh basil! Made with real local maple syrup, balanced with apple cider vinegar and packed with farm-fresh basil. Winnipesauki Wood’s Farm Basil Maple Vinaigrette is made with Organic Basil, NH Maple Syrup, and Organic Garlic locally grown by Lakes Region Farmers.

The outstanding flavor found in Laurel Hill’s handcrafted, award-winning jams and jellies comes directly from using only the best fruits and wines available. Each small batch is made by hand with as many local ingredients as possible and without any artificial colors or flavors. Try out  the Apple Cider Jelly or Black Mission Fig Jam!
