Blue Cheese

Le Jeune Autize
Le Jeune Autize

Made much in the same way as a Morbier, with a vegetable ash vein that cuts through the center of each wheel, Le Jeune Autize stands apart due to the fact that is made entirely of goat’s milk. Rather than the muddy, earthy quality often found in Morbier, le Jeune Autize offers a sweeter and lighter flavor.

Cambozola
Cambozola

Extra cream is added to the milk, giving Cambozola a rich consistency characteristic of triple crèmes, while the edible bloomy rind is similar to that of Camembert. Cambozola is considerably milder than Gorgonzola picante and features a smooth, creamy texture with a subdued blue flavor.

Glacier Blue
Glacier Blue

One of the company's flagship cheeses, this blue wheel develops a natural rind as it ages for 75 days, developing a fudgy, deep yellow paste with a beautiful sheen and periwinkle splotching. It's designed to be a “gateway” blue, approachable and palate-pleasing even to blue cheese skeptics.

Tomme de Savoie
Tomme de Savoie

Tomme de Savoie is a semi-soft, pressed cheese with a pliable and firm texture. It has numerous irregular “eyes” spread throughout the ivory-coloured paste. The flavours are of grass, nuts and rusticity. Expect some tangy, slight citrus and mushroom notes underlined by odours of a cave.

Swiss Emmentaler
Swiss Emmentaler

Emmentaler is pale yellow and riddled with distinctive holes, or “eyes.” It has a hard, thin rind covered by paper with the producer’s name on it. The aroma is sweet, with notes described by some as similar to fresh-cut hay. Its flavor is nutty and somewhat buttery, with a slightly fruity, acidic tone.

Four Fat Fowl-St. Stephen
Four Fat Fowl-St. Stephen

Our first cheese is a beautiful, hand-crafted triple cream that bursts with buttery and milky overtones. A smooth, silky interior made from all natural Jersey cow's milk and fresh Jersey cream creates the perfect texture, while our soft, bloomy rind adds an earthy flavor with nutty undertones.

Point Reyes Toma
Point Reyes Toma

Semi-hard cheese, creamy in texture with a waxed rind. Creamy, buttery flavor with a grassy, tangy finish.

Cowgirl Creamery Devil's Gulch
Cowgirl Creamery Devil's Gulch

Named after the narrow ravine carved along the base of Mt. Barnabe, just down the road from Bivalve Dairy, where we source the organic, pasture-based milk. Devil's Gulch is then encrusted with dried red heirloom peppers grown by our friends at Allstar Organics. The seasonings celebrate the season with a festive and vibrant appearance and a warming flavor that contrasts with the buttery notes of the cheese.
