Subscription Details

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.

February's Valentine's Themed Box (Cheese & Chocolate, The Perfect Pair)

Redhead Creamery Mini-Heart Brie, 4oz

A soft-ripened, bloomy rind cow cheese that has a bright curd and white button mushroom flavor. Allow to come to room temp to have a spreadable cheese perfect for a baguette.

Pairs with Milène Jardine Chocolatier 70% Dark Chocolate, 3oz

Spring Brook Farm Reading Raclette, 8oz

An award-winning, American artisan favorite, Reading is aged approximately three months, and is washed with a brine solution during its aging process. The result is a unique creamy texture balanced by nutty, grassy undertones found closer to the rind (the rind tastes like peanuts!).

Pairs with Milène Jardine Chocolatier 70% Pistachio Dark Chocolate, 3oz

Deer Creek Cheese The Stag Clothbound Cheddar, 6oz

Select vats of Deer Creek's younger cheddar, The Fawn, are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold, yet balanced flavor characteristics of The Stag. This complex cheddar tastes like the cheddar of the founder's youth: buttered popcorn on the nose, with a bright lemon curd acidity that evolves into rich toffee and cured meat flavor characteristics.

Pairs with Milène Jardine Chocolatier 70% Toasted Coconut & Kaffir Lime Leaf Dark Chocolate, 3oz

Limited Release Exclusive Cheese-Infused Chocolate Truffle

For February's shipment, each and every new subscription order (even if you don't opt for pairings!) will rececive one of our custom-made cheese-infused chocolate truffles by Milène Jardine Chocolatier. It starts by melting Reading Raclette cheese into the ganache as it is freshly being made. The cheese-infused ganache is packaged inside a crisp, dark chocolate shell and finished with citrus bourbon sea salt (gluten-free). Experience the ultimate cheese and chocolate pairing in one delightful bite, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Add our February pairings to your order for the ultimate cheese & chocolate pairing experience!

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.

The Cheese Grotto is fantastic - it keeps my blocks of cheese fresher for longer periods of time, unwrapped in all their glory.

CK, Cheese Grotto Classico Owner

It really does extend the life of cheese over time. Aside from the functionality, the Cheese Grotto looks great and is easy to maintain.

Allan, Cheese Grotto Fresco Owner

The Cheese Grotto is a must have for anyone who loves cheese. Looks stunning and keeps all of your cheeses in perfect condition.
