We've curated a number of monthly cheese subscriptions, so you can continue to be delighted year-round with unique, and interesting American artisan cheeses. This option includes a selection of monger-selected cheese(s) with accompaniment(s) and crackers. Complete with literature on storing, serving, and pairing, each selection will highlight American artisanal cheesemakers. Our mission is to have you discover new cheeses and cheesemakers, give you a sense of American terroir, and provide education that lasts throughout the month with cheeses that will last for weeks when stored properly in your Grotto.
Artisan Cheese - According to the American Cheese Society, "artisan or artisanal implies that a cheese is produced primarily by hand, in small batches, with particular attention paid to the tradition of the cheesemaker’s art, and thus using as little mechanization as possible in the production of the cheese."
Over the past decade, the American Artisan cheese industry has been recognized internationally for its quality and integrity. Small to medium-scale artisan cheesemakers have a core set of values - high-quality milk makes incredible cheese, and high quality land and animal management makes for incredible milk. In our current industrial agriculture system, committing to these core values requires long hours of hard work and an acute attention to detail.
This monthly subscription directly supports American Artisan Cheesemakers, and the continual diversification of our food system.
