Keep them busy while you finish dinner! This scrumptious cheese board doubles as a pairing activity; each cheese is matched with a bespoke preserve designed to compliment the style, topped off with a handsome wooden spreader.
GIFT BOX INCLUDES:
Little Hosmer - Little Hosmer is an approachable and nuanced soft ripened cheese. Beneath its thin, bloomy-rind lies a gooey, milky core showing a complex array of flavors at peak ripeness: cauliflower, crème fraîche, and toasted nuts. A bright, clean finish with a hint of white mushroom aroma follows the rich flavors of the paste. (4oz wheel)
Bayley Hazen Blue - Winner of the 2018 ACS Conference Best in Class and made with raw milk, this natural rind blue is known for its fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well-distributed blue veins. (8 ounce wedge)
Cave-Aged Cheddar - Jasper Hill Farm’s Sensory Team selects each batch of this modern cheddar from Cabot Creamery for cave-finishing within a specially calibrated vault. During ripening, the smooth texture of the paste becomes dense and concentrated. A handsome, natural rind forms to impart unique aromas and thus overall complexity to the intensifying flavors. (6.5 oz piece)
Willoughby - This succulent and buttery washed-rind cheese has aromas of peat, roasted beef and onions - a strong and complex front for the subtle milky, herbal, ripe-peach flavors within. (8oz wheel)
1 set of 4 mini Blake Hill Preserves Made by Blake Hill in partnership with Jasper Hill Farm, these unique jams pair beautifully with the different styles of cheese in our collection.

Wooden Spreader This is a 7" long cheese spreader, crafted in Vermont from cherry wood at Rockledge Farm Woodworks.
