It's no secret that we love cheese. WFM is an associate member of the Vermont Cheese Council and proud sponsor of the annual Vermont Cheesemakers Festival. We have a deep respect for the artisan cheesemakers in the state and make it a point to support their work and products.
Over the past few years, Cheesemakers Festival attendees voted for their favorite cheese and the winners are given the honor of "Best of the Fest" We've paired the winning cheeses with a few of our favorite products to create the perfect gift!
Harbison, The Cellars at Jasper Hill (Greensboro, VT)
Best of the Fest Winner! Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic, bloomy rind. Woodsy and sweet.
Verdena, Wood's Pure Vermont Syrup Co. (Randolph, VT)
A new product from Woodâ€™s Syrup which is an alchemy of balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and a touch of Bourbon. When paired with the rich, herbal flavor of Harbison, the two create a balance of sweet salty goodness.
Charlito'sTrufaSeca, Charlito'sCocina (New York City, NY)
Made with pasture raised, heritage breed pork and Seasoned with black truffles and mineral rich sea salt. Pair this with the Harbison and Verdena and you may reach a bite of umami nirvana.
**Due to the limited availability of some of our products at different times of the year, we will just go ahead and substitute another great product of equal value if necessary.
