Jasper Hill Farm Cheese Tasting Box
For the love of cheese.
Heads up! To make sure this cheese arrives at your door as fresh-as-can-be, all orders will ship overnight express (which means you'll be building your dream cheese board before you know it).
These tasting boxes had us at “cheese,” and then we found out there was even more to love. Everything inside ‘em comes straight from Jasper Hill Farm in Greensboro, Vermont, where—get this—there’s a 22,000-square-foot, seven-vaulted cellar for aging cheddars and blues. Each cheese is made with top-notch milk from a single herd of cows, too (either Jasper Hill’s or one at a nearby creamery). We’d tell you this goodness has earned dozens of awards over the years, but, well, you probably figured that out already.
Take your pick from five different boxes (more on those in the Details). Each one’s coming with a few—or more than a few—of the cheeses you’ll meet below.
- Alpha Tolman: Inspired by Alpine cheeses, it starts off with a buttery fruit-and-nut flavor, then gets a caramelized onion–like taste as it ages. We love it for fondue!
- Bayley Hazen Blue: Beloved by blue cheese fans for its fudge-like texture and toasted-nut sweetness, it’ll pair right up with burgers, salad, or a hunk of dark chocolate.
- Bridgman Blue: This one’s got notes of cow and goat milk, white pepper, and buckwheat honey. (We’d enjoy it over a juicy steak or with an herby beet salad.)
- Cabot Clothbound: A natural-rind, cloth-wrapped cheddar with a crumbly texture and nutty aroma. Savory and sweet, it goes with charcuterie, honey, you name it.
- Harbison: A tree bark–wrapped cheese that’s been soft-ripened for a spoonable texture. It’s woodsy, citrusy, and sweet—perfect for white wine and crusty bread.
- Highlander: This nutty, buttery cheese is inspired by Swiss Raclette. Thanks to its semi-firm texture, it’ll melt right over potatoes (don’t forget the pickles and cured meat).
- Landaff: It’s got a buttermilk-like tang with notes of savory brown butter, making it a just-right match for whole-grain mustard, smoked meats, and berry preserves.
- Little Hosmer: A mini New World–style Brie, it has notes of cauliflower, crème fraîche, and toasted nuts underneath its bloomy rind. Picnic, cheese board...your pick.
- Moses Sleeper: Inspired by a classic French Brie, it has notes of cauliflower, crème fraîche, and toasted nuts, too. Set it on a cheese board with crusty baguette, or bake it en croûte (then invite us over).
- Willoughby: This one’s a washed-rind cheese with roast-beef and onion aromas, along with milky, peach-like flavors. We’re pairing it with juicy rosé and raw floral honey.

Care & Notes +-
It's best to store your cheese so that it is able to breathe without drying out. You can store it in a resealable container, while wrapped in its original wrapper (or a fresh sheet of wax or parchment paper). We don't recommend using plastic wrap to store your cheese.
