January's Cheeses of the Month
The month of January is focused on selections picked by our Cheesemongers. Here’s just a handful of what they’re offering this month. Be sure to swing by for a chat with one of our Cheesemongers and let them help you find your next favorite!
Cottonwood River Cheddar
This farmstead raw milk aged Cheddar comes to us from Jason Wiebe Dairy, a third-generation dairy farm located in central Kansas. A unique crafting process develops a flavor that is sharp but not tangy, with a nutty sweetness that stands out. The texture is still creamy but with more of a crystalline crunch. The color is a pale yellow from the small amount of annatto that is added to the milk at the beginning of the cheesemaking process. It is aged for about a year.

Tulip Tree Creamery was founded in 2014 by Fons Smits and Laura Davenport in Indianapolis, Indiana. Foxglove is a double cream, washed-rind cheese with a soft consistency when young, which breaks down into a runny, spoonable cheese as it ages. It has an earthy, pungent flavor created by a mixture of cultures – yeast, salt and beer – that are applied to the rind. If you enjoy Époisses-style cheeses, this cheese may hit the spot! It is aged from four to twelve weeks.

Joyfull Bakery Parmesan Crisps
These slow-baked cheese snacks are made with 100% real aged Parmesan cheese – that’s all! They are naturally wheat free, low in carbs and protein-packed with zero sugars and zero trans fats or additives. Enjoy these crisps on their own, with dips or in any way you would use a cracker. We especially recommend layering them with prosciutto and topping with more cheese for an easy appetizer!
