For the first time ever, Heritage Foods is offering cheese! In partnership with Saxelby Cheesemongers, a wonderful New York based purveyor of American farmstead cheeses, we have curated the Heritage Foods Victory Cheese Box to celebrate and support our country’s elite dairy farmers and cheesemakers.
Inspired by WWI and WWII era Victory Gardens, when Americans were encouraged to take a more active role in their food system, Victory Cheese is a movement to help sustain America’s artisan cheesemakers by uniting dairy farmers, cheesemakers, chefs, and YOU, the cheese loving public during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
All cheese boxes in the Victory series support a different non-profit. 100% of the profits from sales of our box will go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund whose vision is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
The Heritage Victory Cheese Box includes three of our favorite domestically produced cheeses for pairing with Heritage meats:
Ascutney Mountain, Cobb Hill Cheese, 8oz, raw cow’s milk Ascutney cheese is made from the milk of a small herd of Jersey cows raised by an intentional farming community in Hartland, Vermont. It’s deep yellow in color and a bit like all your favorite aged styles — Gruyere, cave-aged Cheddar, and Gouda — all wrapped up into one round delicious package. Each wheel is grassy, earthy, hazelnutty, pineappley, and can become downright butterscotchy as it ages. Aged for 8-10 months.
Shelburne Cheddar, Shelburne Farms, 8oz, raw cow’s milk Shelburne Cheddar is made in Vermont, on one of the most beautiful farm estates built in the mid-1800's by a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, from the raw milk of gorgeous Brown Swiss cows and aged for different amounts of time according to how the cheesemaker grades each batch. This one year aged cheddar cheese is delicious and balanced: bright, fruity, and sharp, with a creamy texture and a long finish.
Mini Kunik, Nettle Meadow Farm, 4oz, pasteurized goat and cow's milk Kunik is a dreamy soft-ripened goats' milk cheese spiked with fresh Jersey cream in the Adirondack Mountains at Nettle Meadow Farm. When young, Kunik has the texture of cold butter and is light, tangy, and similar to crème-fraîche in flavor. As it ripens, it becomes more supple, loose, and gamey, the goat cheese flavors becoming more assertive. Each wheel is aged 4-6 weeks.
Firefly Farms Chevre, Firefly Farms, 4oz, pasteurized goat's milk Creamy fresh chevre from the southwestern corner of Maryland. Firefly Farms has been making cheese since 2002, and supports a network of local goat and cow dairies by purchasing their milk and turning into top quality cheese! Firefly Farms chevre is light, tangy, and clean… the perfect thing to top a salad, crostini, or fold into pasta. Aged 1-4 weeks.
