12 Months of Cheese Subscription

Long Description

Finally!  An award-winning cheese subscription fully customizable to your cheese preferences and allergies.  We'll curate an extraordinary, rotating selection of three American artisan cheeses per month (approx 1.5 pounds), with the option to add pairings and crackers.

By letting our experts select the cheeses in each delivery, you'll expand your palate, discover new favorites, and experience the best that American artisan cheesemakers have to offer. There are hundreds of artisan cheese producers in the United States and thousands of wheels to try.

Here's a pro tip for diving into our cheese subscription: Challenge yourself to try new cheeses and expand your palate! You may not have enjoyed goat cheese or funky cheeses like blues and washed rinds in the past, but you just might find some you love in your next subscription box.

With each shipment, we'll email a custom digital tasting guide with tips for creating the perfect food and beverage pairings with your selections. You'll also receive a printable and editable tasting journal you can use to take notes on each cheese.

Cheese Styles Included

• Bloomy rind, Washed rind, Natural rind, Waxed rind, Blue, Smoked, Herbed, Spiced, Cow cheese, Sheep cheese, Goat cheese (unless otherwise requested in our preferences section)

• What are funky cheeses? We call blue cheeses and washed rind cheeses “funky cheeses” because they are stronger in flavor and aroma.  

• What are flavored cheeses? We call cheeses infused with herbs, spices, and smoke “flavored cheeses” because the interior or exterior of the cheese has added flavor.

• The subscription includes three cheeses (1.5 pounds total) per shipment. The cheeses shipped are selected at optimal ripeness and best enjoyed within 2 to 3 weeks of delivery.

• One serving of cheese is anywhere from 2 to 4 ounces, depending on your appetite. This package is great for 6 to 12 servings over weeks of enjoyment.

December's Cheese Box

Well-balanced Truffle Brie

Marin French Cheese Co.’s Petite Truffle Brie is irresistibly earthy and aromatic. It begins with the same recipe as our classic Triple Crème Brie with the addition of real black truffles imported from France. The rich flavor of the black speckles seen throughout the paste of the truffle cheese is balanced by notes of sweet cream and a decadent, smooth texture.

Place your order by Thursday, December 15th to have the kit arrive by Christmas.

Crystalline, 21 Month-old Cow Milk Cheese

Boston Post Dairy only made 75 wheels of this cheese in total. Wonderfully crystalline, the taste is sharp and caramelized yet still buttery and savory. Rcently compared to Vella Dry Jack, the outside has been brushed with para coating and dark cocoa to give it a black coloring. Beautiful with a dry sparkling wine and sicilian capers.

Place your order by Thursday, December 15th to have the kit arrive by Christmas.

Natural Rind Blue Cheese (Think Stilton)

Inspired by the sheer natural beauty of Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese coastal climate and locale, Bay Blue is a rustic-style blue cheese with a natural rind. It is known for its mellow flavor and sweet, salted caramel finish.

Place your order by Thursday, December 15th to have the kit arrive by Christmas.

The pairings and the substitutes

Add our December pairings to your order!

La Quercia coppa: A deeper, richer flavor than prosciutto with a denser texture, pairs perfectly with the truffle in the truffle brie.

Sicilian salted capers: Amazing with Cownty Tales Reserve, please rinse off salt before serving.

Le Bon Magot Sour Cherry Conserve: Amazing with all three cheeses and port. Also makes an INCREDIBLE sauce for duck breast.

Effie's Oatcakes with walnut, cranberry, and fennel. Known as a cheese biscuit!

Not a fan of flavored cheese? We'll sub Marin French Petite Camembert for Truffle brie.

Not a fan of blue cheese? We'll sub Roth Grand Cru, an American artisan version of Gruyere.

Vegetarian? We'll sub dequmana mixed olives for the coppa.

No matter your preference, we have a kit for you!

What Is 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 community 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 industrial food system, committing to these core values requires long hours of hard work and strict attention to detail.


Our monthly subscription directly supports American artisan cheesemakers and the strengthening and diversification of our food system.
