  1. Prairie Breeze

    Prairie Breeze

    $9.99

    **Festival Feature!** The unique flavors of this cheddar exemplify how the creativity and imagination of American cheesemakers can result in unexpected and exceptional cheese. Both sharp and nutty, creamy and crystalline, Prairie Breeze is made by Galen Musser, the son of Milton Creamery’s owner. Less than a year after Milton Creamery opened, Galen took over the cheesemaking process at the young age of 16, and just a few years later, his Prairie Breeze took the Best Cheddar award at the American Cheese Society’s 2009 competition. Made with fresh milk from neighboring Amish farmers who hand milk their cows, we are glad this Davenport Farmers’ Market favorite has moved into the national spotlight. Try pairing Prairie Breeze with a fruit forward Merlot. Learn More
  2. Point Reyes Blue

    Point Reyes Blue

    $10.99

    **Festival Feature!** You can taste the salty ocean breeze in this American treasure made on a beautiful farm overlooking the Pacific. A collaboration of master cheesemaker Monte McIntyre and perhaps the world's most contented cows. Located in one of the country’s epicenters for natural, artisan food, Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company utilizes their certified organic, San Francisco Bay area land as a pasture on which their cows graze. The raw milk is gathered each morning and turned into their original blue cheese within hours. The aging process, however, takes six months, with the initial three weeks dedicated to hand-salting, turning, and piercing the wheels. The result is a creamy, mild, yet full-flavored blue that’s easy to enjoy by itself or included in your own American Artisan recipe. Learn More
