Full Shipping Details
Cows, goats and sheep all produce delicious milk, but very different milk. What happens when you blend them for cheesemaking? There’s a long tradition of mixed-milk cheeses in Europe because cheesemakers simply used what they had. Now American cheesemakers are producing mixed-milk cheeses, too, that blend and balance the butteriness of cow’s milk, the lemony notes of sheep’s milk and the tang of goat’s milk. The trio of cheeses in this collection shows what can happen when a skilled cheesemaker blends two, or even three, types of milk. Total deliciousness!

Like the Victory Gardens of times past, Victory Cheese is a grassroots movement, rallying support for American cheesemakers in challenging times. Purchase a Victory Cheese Box for yourself and others. Choose from six different collections curated by Planet Cheese publisher Janet Fletcher or join the Victory Cheese Club and receive a different curated collection of artisan cheeses every month.

Join the fight to save American cheese!

This collection includes:

  • Kunik by Nettle Meadow Farm: Kunik from Nettle Meadow Farm (New York) is a voluptuous triple-cream cheese made on a small family farm in the Adirondacks. Produced from a blend of goat’s milk and Jersey cow’s cream, it has a bloomy rind similar to a Camembert, an aroma like clotted cream, and an interior like whipped butter. What’s not to love? Nice to know: Nettle Meadow Farm is first and foremost an animal sanctuary, with the profits from the cheese sales supporting the care and comfort of a mangerie of neglected or abandoned creatures from chickens to llamas. Pair a sparkling wine with this one. (8 oz)
  • Invierno by Vermont Shepherd: Invierno from Vermont Shepherd (Vermont) is a cow-sheep blend from one of the pioneering sheep-cheese producers in the U.S. David and Yesenia raise several hundred dairy sheep on their farm but purchase the cow’s milk for Invierno from a near neighbor. Invierno ("winter" in Spanish, for the season when they produce it) is a semifirm to firm cheese with a natural rind, matured for 5 to 6 months. Aromas of butter, mushroom and nuts. A handmade raw-milk cheese from a cheesemaker with three decades of experience. (7.5 oz)
  • Ewe Calf to be Kidding by Hook’s Cheese Company: Ewe Calf to be Kidding from Hook’s Cheese Company (Wisconsin) is yet another example of Tony and Julie Hook’s cheesemaking flair. Three sources of milk, one spectacular blue cheese that keeps winning awards. Tony and Julie have been making cheese in the tiny town of Mineral Point for 44 years, and they still have plenty of creative energy for inventing novelties like this captivating blue cheese. Aged for a minimum of 8 months, the cheese is creamy yet crumbly, tangy but not too peppery. (7.5 oz)

    Suggested accompaniments: Jan’s Farmhouse Blueberry Maple Crisps, Michigan Cherry Preserves by Brownwood Farms.
