We’re keeping busy this week restocking, rearranging, and reorganizing to get ready for our big RE-OPENING next week!
Come back to the cheese shop starting next Wednesday, July 1st and stock back up on all your old favorites, unique new items, and more!
(Please practice social distancing while in the shop so we can all continue to stay safe and healthy.)
It’s funny the things you take for granted!
We get orders for cheese curd from all across the country, but we have a feeling many of them are “expats”—people who used to live in Northern New York and have since moved out west or down south.
Anyone who grew up here (or in other dairy-producing areas) knows about cheese curd. But if you didn’t grow up there… would you?

September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day! And luckily tonight is perfect grilling weather, so if you plan to make some burgers tonight (and with Fall fast approaching, it may be one of your last chances!) be sure to stop into the store and get some cheese to take your burger to the next level.
Not sure which cheese is the best for your kind of burger? There’s no wrong answer of course—there’s no shame in using whatever you think works best. But if you still feel you need a little guidance then fear not: “internetainers” Rhett and Link have done some rigorous, highly-scientific testing on their show Good Mythical Morning which we hope will help you make a decision.
Watch their video, “What’s the best cheese for your burger?” on YouTube.
It’s almost fall, and you know what that means… Burrville Apple Cider is here!
Fresh from the cider mill, we’ve got half gallons for sale today, and pint-size bottles coming next week! Apple cider season only lasts so long, so stop in to the cheese shop from 11-6 during the week (11-3 on weekends) and get some while you can!
There’s a great show on Facebook called The Great Cheese Hunt where the two hosts, Herrine Ro and Mike Chen, travel the world in search of “the gooiest, meltiest, most mouthwatering cheese.”
A recent episode found them in Cleveland, where they partake in a challenge that finds them eating an absolutely enormous grilled cheese sandwich made with 14 different types of cheese. We have to admit though, impressive as it may be, we’re no so sure eating a slab of melted cheeses the size of a toaster would be much of a “challenge”!

Ever wonder how people made cheese before the days of refrigeration and other modern conveniences?
Check out this fascinating video demonstrating cheesemaking (and tasting!) by historical reenactors in Western New York. Very interesting!
