New Curds on the Block

In some exciting news, there are a couple of New York cheeses on the market that blend the best of rural/urban collaborations.

First

There is Murray's limited quantity of their cloth-bound cheddar style, Ezra.  These unique cheddar is produced in Cornell University's incubator program, and is being aged in Murray's cheese caves in Long Island City. You can read my newly published article in Edible Manhattan to learn more.

Second

Blue Hill at Stone Barns just released a cheese collaboration that is thrilling: they have commissioned a cheese to be made that is rolled in animal bone ash, a byproduct by their restaurant.  

"First, a blend of goat and cow cheeses from Seal Cove Farm in Maine are dusted with charcoal, produced at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Then, it's shipped to Crown Finish Caves in Brooklyn, where it's dried in a special oven called a sechoir and aged for three more weeks. At that point, it's shipped to Saxelby, ready to eat. "

    Shipping Details

    Hardware

    If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

    Cheese Orders

    As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

    Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

    International Orders

    We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
