    The Mascarpone cheeses are made with farm-fresh sweet cream to deliver a luxurious and velvety product that’s perfect for sweet and savory culinary applications. The Farmer’s Rope is a farm-fresh handmade deli string cheese. While it’s shaped like a rope, it forms strings when pulled apart. The Cheddar Cheese Curds deliver the perfect squeak with each bite and are packed with flavor.
