Spring has sprung, cheese lovers! As the chill of winter fades away, we welcome the arrival of a new season filled with warmth and renewal.

From the first buds on the trees to the colorful blooms popping up in gardens and meadows, spring is a time of wonder and enchantment. So let's take a deep breath of fresh air, bask in the sun's warmth, and embrace the beauty of this season as we welcome the beginning of flowers and talk about what we have for you this month.

Purple Haze by Cypress Grove

Mary Keehn, the founder of California’s Cypress Grove is often credited for contributing to the growth of the American goat cheese market. And rightly so. Her patience, hard work, and commitment to quality paid off and her company has been continuously awarded for its excellence. This uniquely flavored goat cheese is infused with wild fennel pollen and lavender, creating a subtle and complex flavor that is creamy, tangy, floral, and herbaceous. With a soft, spreadable texture, and smooth mouthfeel, Purple Haze evokes the sensation of a field in full bloom, bringing a truly delightful taste of spring that is present in every bite.

Fiore Sardo

Translated as the “Flower of Sardinia”, Italy’s Fiore Sarda, is a true masterpiece of traditional Italian cheesemaking. This rustic, and crumbly hard cheese is made from the milk of Sardinian sheep, which graze on the island's lush pastures, resulting in a rich, salty flavor with a lingering, smoky finish that leaves a pleasant and complex aftertaste. And thanks to this distinct flavor profile and rich history, Fiore Sarda has become beloved both in Italy and around the world. It is a true experience for the senses that will transport you to the sun-drenched countryside of Sardinia.

Barely Buzzed by Beehive Cheese

This one-of-a-kind cheddar from Utah's Beehive Cheese Co. is a testament to the craftsmanship of these beehive state cheesemakers. Founded by brothers-in-law, Pat Ford and Tim Welsh, after they gave up their fast-paced lives in real estate and software- by the time they officially started the company, they had only 8 days of cheesemaking experience between them. What sets this one apart is the unique blend of coffee and lavender that is rubbed onto the cheese during the aging process. The result is a bold and complex flavor that has balanced touches of both savory and sweet, with the smooth texture of a classic cheddar that just melts in your mouth. A familiar favorite with a deliciously distinctive twist.

 Wildflower Honey Shortbread Bites from Willa's

Tennessee's Willa's Shortbread Company is a family-owned business that has been producing high-quality shortbread for generations, and these bites are delicate, comforting, and delicious. The star ingredient, wildflower honey, lends a subtle hint of sweetness that harmonizes perfectly with the cookie's rich and buttery flavor. Each bite is a small but satisfying indulgence, perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the garden with a cup of your favorite tea or coffee.

Fistful of Fleur de Sel by Too Haute Cowgirls

From the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado's Too Haute Cowgirls makes a decadent treat that has a perfectly layered combination of some of our favorite snacks. Each kernel of their signature caramel popcorn is coated in a generous layer of smooth, high-quality chocolate and crushed butter toffee, creating a texture that is both crunchy and velvety smooth. And the addition of fleur de sel, a rare, high-quality sea salt, adds a delicate, savory finishing note that perfectly balances the rich sweetness. This is a rustic, yet sophisticated snack that’s sure to leave a lasting impression.

Raspberry with Wild Bergamot Jam from Blake Hill

Handcrafted with care by the family-owned Blake Hill Preserves, this jam is a delightful blend of sweet and tangy flavors that will tantalize your taste buds. Bursting with bright, fruity aromas, it features a complex, floral undertone that elevates the experience to new heights. Made with plump, ripe raspberries and fragrant wild bergamot flowers, each jar is meticulously prepared by hand using only the finest locally sourced fruits and flowers, including some grown on the company's own farm. The resulting vibrant color and robust, fruity sweetness showcase the natural beauty and flavors of the Vermont countryside.

And that's this month's box! So make some time to go outside, and get ready to welcome the season of flowers and all the joy and color it brings! We'll see you next time!
