Virginia Black Slate Shelf

Virginia Black Slate Shelf

Regular price $30.00 Sale

This shelf is a highly porous stone that regulates cheese in a similar way to the Original Plyboo shelving. The slate is sourced in Virginia.  In caves, slate helps regulate both temperature and humidity of the cheese, and its porous nature contributes to creating an ambiance for each cheese stored inside. The cheese can still breathe on all sides, avoiding excessive dampness of the underside rind.  An added bonus of slate storage: you can also write your cheese selection on the board with the included soap stone piece.
