$9.99**Festival Feature!** Marieke Penterman is a native of Holland who moved to Wisconsin with her young family as a dairy farmer and soon began making cheese. Her namesake cheese, a semi-soft, creamy farmstead Gouda, is aged four to six months and made in a traditional “boerenkase” Dutch method with cultures and equipment imported from her native country. The milk, however, comes fresh from her dedicated herd at the family farm in Northern Wisconsin. Learn More
$10.99**Festival Feature!** Coming to our case from the award-winning makers of Tarentaise, this stunning raclette-style gem gives us lovely butter, easy fruit, and a gentle bite on the palette with a classicly pungent nose. This cheese is made to be melted, especially in traditional Swiss cuisine over potatoes and onions. Of course we love it alone, too, or paired with a fruity Pinot or Syrah. Learn More
