Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog 4 oz
$7.49Conceived in a dream (yes, really!) by founder Mary Keehn, this masterpiece paved the way for soft-ripened goat cheese in America. Each handcrafted wheel features a distinctive ribbon of edible vegetable ash. You'll enjoy buttermilk and fresh cream, complemented with floral notes, herbaceous overtones, and a clean citrus finish. As Humboldt Fog matures, the creamline develops and the flavor intensifies.
Cypress Grove Midnight Moon 4 oz
$8.99Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon® is a blushing, ivory-colored goat cheese that's nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. Similar to a Gouda, as Midnight Moon® ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Know someone who (gasp!) doesn't like goat cheese? Encourage them to dip their toes back in the water with Midnight Moon®, which has been known to convert even the staunchest of goat cheese critics.

Gran Vallee de Montecelo Queso Manchego 4oz
$5.99Taste Manchego for the first time and you will be surprised at how long the wonderful flavor lingers on you palate. Wonderful as s snack with fresh bread or in salads, also great with crusty bread, chorizo and olives for tapas. As a dessert serve simply with membrillo (quince paste) or honey.
Manchego Gran Valle de Montecelo comes from the most awarded dairy in la Mancha, Spain.
Mantoro Manchego 4 oz
$3.99Reny Picot Mantoro, also known as "Michigan Manchego," is very similar to the popular Spanish Manchego cheese. At Old Europe Cheese, we follow the time honored recipes handed down by Spanish generations. However, our domestic version of the national cheese of Spain is made from 100% pasteurized cow's milk instead of the traditionally used sheep's milk.
The creamy golden color and combination of flavors is a delicate balance of sweet and salty, and is generally tangy with a light nuttiness. The lasting sweetness combined with a distinct acidity that tingles as it melts on your tongue creates not only an intense flavor profile, but an invigorating experience.

Boerenkaas Gouda 4 oz
$5.79Boer means 'farmer' and kaas means 'cheese'. Seems simple - but hidden behind that straightforward name is what Gouda's really all about; like really good chocolate, the full complexity isn't revealed for about ten seconds after first taste. Then the intense caramel flavor bursts forth. The curds are made from raw milk and then rinsed of the acidic, watery whey before getting pressed into large, flat spherical wheels. This special treatment cuts out sharpness and allows butterscotch and cashew flavors to prevail over an 18-24 month aging period. Totally snackable, especially with beer.

House-marinated Feta Cheese
$21.99Our cheesemonger marinates feta in EVOO and her special (and secret) blend of herbs.
By the pound
Sheep's Feta in Brine (by the pound)
$14.99No matter whether you're crumbling, blending, melting, or slicing your feta, it'll be better if it's been chilling in a vat of salt water. If you don't believe us, just try it in a whipped feta dip, a chopped salad, or a bean and escarole stew. Each and every feta recipe will reap the benefits of the brine. We guarantee it.
And if you need any more convincing: The brine that your feta is floating in is actually a delicious ingredient all on its own! Once you've gobbled up all that cheese, you can use the cloudy, tangy, slightly acidic liquid to brine poultry, make sauces and dressings, or just add a little salty seasoning to whatever you're cooking up.
Vermeer Gouda 5 oz
$7.79This Dutch Vermeer Cheese is naturally matured for 22 weeks, so it is a rather young cheese. This award winning cheese has a delicate, fruity taste.
Produced in Holland
Vermont Creamery Double-cream Cremont

Pecorino Romano 8 oz
$5.99Pecorino Romano is a hard, compact Italian sheep's milk cheese with a sharp and salty flavor that is ideal for grating and flavoring dishes. Its name derives from the Italian word pecorino, which means "sheep" and the Roman era during which the cheese was a food staple. Today, it is one of the most well-known Italian cheeses outside of Italy—high in protein, high in fat, and a rich source of calcium.
Leicester Red 4 oz
$8.99One of the 'County Cheddars' named after the counties of England, Leicestershire Red, or Red Leicester, is an aged, buttered-clothbound cheese similar to a cheddar but much more moist and crumblier with a milder flavor. The cheese pairs with grapes and pears and is suited to a full-bodied white wine such as Muscadet, Sancerre, Chenin Blanc and Vouvray.
Prairie Breeze Cheddar 4 oz
$4.99Prairie Breeze™ is Milton Creamery's twist on a well-aged white cheddar style cheese, aged for a minimum of 9 months, made with vegetarian rennet and no added color.
It is sweeter than your typical cheddar with lots of flavor, crumbly yet creamy with a little crunch from the calcium crystals developed during the aging process. It's nutty tones and fresh canned pineapple scent distinguish it from all other cheddars and makes you want "just one more" bite of this unique cheese.
Milton Creamery located in Southern Iowa – a place with rolling hills, woodlands, rivers and rich soil.
