All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).

This cheese is wonderful. Extremely flavorful, pleasantly firm sheep cheese. It's strong and complex (maybe a bit nutty, a hint of sweetness? not quite sure how to put it into words but it's a really excellent rich flavor). It has some delicious crystals that give it a perfect mouthfeel. It reminds me a lot of my previous favorite cheese of all time, the sadly discontinued Ewereka from Central Coast Creamery -- if you liked Ewereka you need to try this! Absolutely amazing.
