Chapel Hill Creamery

Spring is here and we're back for Wednesday with cheese and mea!. Our Carolina Moon is ripe and ready to serve for a great appetizer or as a side to a big salad or soup. It is our version of Camembert with a smooth texture and rich flavor from our Jersey milk. We will also have Dairyland Farmers cheese  and Pheta. The Dairyland Farmers is a fresh, unaged cheese that is moist and a little tart. Kids of all ages like this cheese. It makes a great snack with hot pepper jelly, or melt it in some scrambled eggs or tacos. Pheta is less moist and saltier; add it to salads, tabouli or pizza.  All our cheeses are made with the milk from our Jersey cows who are grazing on fresh spring grass. We'll also have mild and Hot dinner sausages plus two kinds of Breakfast sausage. Bring a cooler, come taste our cheese, and pick up our recipe for Chorizo and Dairyland Farmers Tacos. Bon Appetit.
