Cato Corner’s Dairyere – Best find at Union Square Greenmarket

May 18, 2015

Cato Corner Farm from Connecticut makes the best farmstead, raw milk cheese to be found at NYC’s Union Square Market on a Saturday morning. It’s true, happy animals make happy cheese, and this cheesemaker makes a number of delicious cheeses. Dairyere is one of their award winning cheeses, reminiscent of a gruyere. Perfectly balanced, full flavoured, and went well with my pinto grigio. 

Fox Hill Cheese House – Fenugreek Havarti

November 2, 2011

Rick from the Fox Hill Cheese House in Nova Scotia was the nicest cheesemaker I had the pleasure of meeting on my recent trip to Halifax. This delightful, family-run, farmstead business is quality through and through.  Sustainable farming practices are employed; they proudly plant the seed, grow the grass, milk the cows, and make fantastic cheese, yogurt, gelato and milk.  This is a textbook example of a cheesemaker that focuses on producing good milk which is of course the lifeblood of good cheese.
