Because animals are naturally cyclical breeders and grazing conditions change
throughout the year, there is a seasonal nature to farmstead and other fine artisanal
cheeses. Although there are ways for cheesemakers to work around the changing

If a cheese listed in one of our selections becomes unavailable, or is not at
its peak of ripeness when your order comes in, Ditty will choose an alternative.
Trust her to make a great selection for you.
