Boucher Blue is handmade by brothers Daniel and Denis of the renowned Québecois Boucher family, whose 1,000 acre farm boasts 120 Holstein and French Normandy cows. The brothers have deep roots in the region: Their family has been cultivating land for nearly 400 years. Long ago they tilled the land by the Lake Champlain and St. Lawrence River valleys in what was once New France (now Quebec). Their ancestor Pierre Boucher was celebrated after the French and Indian War for making peace with the Iroquois. Boucher Blue is an American blue raw cow’s milk cheese with a sweet, creamy, earthy flavor that incorporates the tastes of chestnut and vanilla. Delicious by itself or in a salad.
Maplebrook fresh mozzarella is made daily in the mountains of Vermont so that every bite is fresh, all natural and full of homemade goodness. The farm’s unique old-world approach of stretching and molding premium raw cow curd in small batches and using all natural ingredients delivers a smooth, moist and refreshingly distinct mozzarella cheese.
