We offer several local artisan and farmstand cheeses. These cheeses were produced by the farmers who raised the animals that produced the milk. This results in a product that is superior to mass produced cheeses and reflects the time and care the cheese makers put into it. We offer cheeses from Doe Run Farm, Shellbark Hollow, Conebella Farm, Hillside Pastures, Birchrun Hills Farm, and Taste Artisanal Market Cheese spreads.
