  1. Toma

    Toma

    $9.99

    **Festival Feature!** Stylistically this is a semi-firm Italian cow’s milk cheese traditionally made in the Aosta Valley & Piedmont regions, and closely related to the French Tomme. The origins of the name “toma” (and its derivation in the french “tomme”) are unknown. Some speculate that it comes from the word tomé, which means “fall” in the regional dialect. When curds separate from the whey, they fall to the bottom of the vat, thus giving credence to the name. This particular toma is the work of Bob Giacomini and his family at Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co. in Northern California. The milk comes from their own herd of Holstein cows, which graze on organic, pastured hills overlooking Tomales Bay on the Pacific shore. This cheese is at once buttery and grassy with a tangy finish. Learn More
  2. Bijou

    Bijou

    $10.99

    **Festival Feature!** Fashioned after the finest French Crottin, these little barrels hold lots of flavors. When young, it is sweet and creamy with notes of citrus, nuts, and flowers. Left to age, the flavors concentrate to a piquant, wild depth. The delicate rind offers an additional yeasty tang. These buttons are great for crumbling on salads or to use in your favorite recipe. Allison Hooper at the Vermont Butter & Cheese Company makes this cheese using goat's milk sourced from a local network of family farms.
