Rogue River Blue
A world champion cheese that is fudgy and rich!
Judged “best cheese in the world” at the 2019/202 World Cheese Awards, Rogue River Blue is a true showstopper. Made from organic cow's milk during autumn then aged for 9 months and wrapped in pear liqueur soaked Syrah grape leaves.

Pleasant Ridge Reserve
The most awarded cheese in American history- and for good reason
incredibly sweet from the grass-fed milk while still having a savory finish from the natural and slightly washed rind. super rich and complex, salty with a long and fruity finish.
the namesake of Capriole Farm is this soft and pretty wheel covered in flower petals, herbs, and fennel pollen
Stunning 1/3 lb wheels of fresh goaty deliciousness that are the definition of eating first with our eyes. Feast away on the delicate, tart, and lactic with its fine and airy texture and flavors of fresh grass, herbs, and flowers. The rind is covered in fresh flower petals, herbs, and fennel pollen.
A truly unique aged goat’s milk that is surprisingly creamy and floral
This wonderfully delicate and creamy semi-hard goat's milk cheese is made using traditional cheesemaking techniques with modern equipment. With a long floral and granular finish, Verigoat is a perfectly delicious cheese- great for snacking, cheese boards, or cooking.
the limited-edition spoonable (and crave-able) washed rind bound in spruce
Available only during the months of November and December while the cows are eating the winter’s dry hay, this gooey and spoonable washed wheel is the ideal centerpiece to any festive table. It is rich and deep in flavor reminiscent of beef broth, cured meat, cultured cream, toasted nuts, and grass.
A raw and unfiltered wildflower honey from Bowie, Maryland
Stormy Acres Bee Farm, run by Allan and Elaine Storm, are among our very favorites. Located in Bowie, Maryland, they specialize in fantastic wildflower honey. Every harvest is a little different depending on what the bees are into.
