  • Bella Bantam

    (pasteurized, cow, aged 1-3 months)

    Fresh and milky, with a slight tang. Bella Bantam is one we like to nibble on for breakfast, and later in the day it makes for a lovely, mild melting cheese.

    Drink pairings: try this with your morning coffee, or with a slightly off-dry Alsatian Riesling. Where to Buy Nutritional Facts

  • Camembert

    2nd place winner at the 2013 American Cheese Society Competition!

    (pasteurized cow, aged 6-10 weeks)

    Soft, with a cloudlike bloom on the rind, our Camembert is subtle and sweet. This cheese truly expresses the fresh, bright, clean flavor of our milk. For something more runny and earthy, look for our Karlie’s Gratitude camembert-style cheese, when available.

    Suggested drink pairings: dry sparkling white wine, northern Italian white wine or a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Also great with a fresh pilsner or kolsch.

  • Crybaby

    (pasteurized, cow, aged 3-5 months)

    Our Swiss-style cheese, smooth and grassy, with a piquant finish. Great on sandwiches and we love to grate it over our kale salad at Arethusa al Tavolo. When we opened the first wheel small drops of moisture nestled in the “eyes” of this cheese, just like tears.

    Suggested drink pairings: southern Italian reds from Puglia and Basilicata, malty amber ales or British-style lagers. Where to Buy Nutritional Facts

  • Europa

    (pasteurized, cow, aged 3 months)

    A young Gouda-style cheese, Europa boasts big, caramelized flavor and a pliable texture. As with Dutch tradition, this cheese has a sunset orange color, making it a dramatic addition to any cheese plate.

    Drink pairings: full-bodied red wines such as Bordeaux blends and Sangiovese, spirits such as bourbon, scotch or rye. Where to Buy Nutritional Facts

  • Farmer's Cheese

    (pasteurized, cow, fresh)

    Arethusa fresh Farmer’s Cheese is bright and tangy, with a creamy, mouth-coating finish. Made from our whole milk, it’s a lighter alternative to cream cheese or crème fraiche, and shines in both sweet and savory preparations. Mix with fresh herbs, olive oil, salt & pepper for a quick, flavorful dip or sandwich spread. Use it as you would a ricotta in fresh pasta dishes, or combine with lemon zest for your next cheesecake.

    Suggested drink pairings: dry sparkling white or rose wine, Belgian-style wheat ales, and dry sparkling ciders all complement this cheese in any of its many applications. Where to Buy Nutritional Facts

    (pasteurized, cow, aged 6-10 weeks)

    The latest experiment happening in our cheesemaking room, Rotondo has that recognizable“stinky” rind – glistening, orange, delicious.

    The paste is yogurty and sweet, making this cheese great for the more adventurous eater.

    Drink pairings: we love stinky cheese with white Burgundy or the Italian Malvasia grape, or pour yourself a trappist-style ale for a

    classic complement. Where to Buy Nutritional Facts
