Browse our fine selection of gourmet Farmstead cheeses. Farmstead or farmhouse (fermier in French) cheese means that the production of the milk and the making of the cheese occurs on the same farm and that the same company or family is in charge of both. Farmstead is not necessarily artisanal nor visa versa, but a single source is often regarded as high quality because the milk is controlled by the same people who make the cheese.

Our Featured Gourmet Farmstead Cheese
Southern Belle is lovely goat cheese developed by Tasia Malakasis, owner of Fromagerie Belle Chevre in Elkmont, Alabama. This is not an ordinary goat's milk cheese, it is a small 4 oz. disc that is covered with bourbon pecans, mint and sugar - a real Southern treat or should we say the cheese treat for the Kentucky Derby.
This award-winning gourmet cheese is a perfect match with a mint julep or with a glass of fine white wine. A nice plain cracker will serve this cheese well. read more...
