FEATURED PRODUCTS

Lady Apples

Lady Apples, one of the smallest apple varieties, are also thought to be the one of the oldest varieties, first enjoyed by the Romans in 700 BC.  This winter apple has pale green skin and a characteristic red blush.  The flavor is crisp and juicy with a sweet tart finish.  Although commonly used for decoration, these apples are best baked, caramelized, or roasted.  Pair with almonds, bacon, butter, cheese, chestnuts, ginger, maple, and sausage.

Palhais Portuguese Goat Cheese

Palhais is a traditional goat cheese made in Torres Vedras, Portugal.  It is a small, semi-soft, pasteurized cheese without any rind development that is typically aged 10-30 days.  Palhais does not have the usual chalky texture of goat cheese.  Its texture is almost bouncy with a slightly salty finish.  This cheese is ideal for marinating in olive oil, rolling in herbs, garnishing salads or flatbreads, or even simply for a cheese plate.  Serve at room temperature.
