Support Cheesemakers with a Victory Cheese Box

Support Cheesemakers with a Victory Cheese Box

We love American cheese
And we would be so sad if it went away. The COVID-19 crisis is devastating the American cheese industry, from dairy farmers and cheesemakers to distributors, restaurants, and cheese counters across the country. A grassroots collection of cheese professionals – including cheesemakers, mongers, chefs, and cheese guilds from across the country – came together to find ways to help our struggling industry – creating the Victory Cheese Box.

Like the Victory Garden movement of a by-gone era, the Victory Cheese Box is a call for cheese lovers to choose domestically-produced artisan cheese. Each cheese in this box supports a local community or family and reflects a commitment to quality in farming, cheesemaking, and deliciousness in every bite.  In addition to supporting cheesemakers by purchasing their product, we'll donate an additional $10 from each box to our Covid-19 charity fund that is helping to support food related charities.

Each St. Kilian's Victory Cheese Box varies, but we'll select a range of 3-4 cheeses from some our favorite American producers and you'll receive 1 to 1.5 lbs of cheese in total, plus our Redcamper collaboration Mostarda.  If you have any special requests or omissions let us know in the notes on your order, and we'll do our best to accommodate.
 
In addition to getting delicious cheese, you'll also be supporting great producers during an especially challenging time. Together, let's step up to celebrate and support American cheese.

The Victory box is available now and can be ordered for shipping, pickup or delivery to with our new improved delivery service with scheduled deliveries 7 days a week and a larger area of coverage.

Celebrate Mom with Something Sweet or Savory

Celebrate Mom with Something Sweet or Savory

Mother's Day is coming up! Have you made plans yet? Taking mom out for brunch this year is not going to happen, but you can pick up some delicious gifts or have them delivered to her door for true pampering.


If your lady prefers sweet and floral flavors, choose the gift bag complete with Colorado Bee Squared Rose Honey, a decadent white chocolate bar with roses and strawberries, and slice of the Alp Blossom cheese. This alpine cheese is pressed with edible blossoms for a beautiful appearance and tantalizing taste. More delicious than a bouquet of flowers! Check out the gift here.


For a more spicy and savory mom, choose the gift with two savory cheeses, Il Porcellino's Diablo Salami and Colorado-made pickled dilly beans with smoked paprika from The Good Jar. Place an order for pick-up, shipping or delivery here.

Adopt-An-Alp Cheeses are Here!

Adopt-An-Alp Cheeses are Here!

 

If you love alpine cheeses or food with a story behind it, this one is for you. We are excited to have Adopt-An-Alp cheeses in the shop now and more coming in December.

What is an Adpot-An-Alp cheese? The movement of people and animals in accordance with the seasons is a centuries old tradition and one that is great for nature and for making delicious cheeses. But spending summers far away from civilization and caring for animals in all seasons and terrains is hard work and a dwindling trade. Adopt-an-Alp unites Alp farmers in Switzerland, where this practice of transhumance has been going on for centuries, and American cheese mongers. We are so excited to be one of those cheese mongers! Through telling the story of each family, sharing photos and updates, we are able to follow our adopted family and herd in Switzerland and see all of the hard work that goes into making an alpine cheese. We are able to support these hardworking farms and then enjoy their spectacular cheese. It's a win-win.

Be on the lookout for these Adpot-An-Alp cow's, sheep's and goat's milk cheeses in the shop.

Our Favorite Cheese for a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Our Favorite Cheese for a Grilled Cheese Sandwich

We are often asked in the shop what is our favorite cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich. While we like to switch it up every now and again,  our go-to cheese is hands down the Scharfe Maxx. It's the ultimate melting cheese.

Made in Switzerland, it's firm, yet super creamy with pop of its signature sharpness. (Scharfe Maxx means extra sharp.)

Grab some in the shop or online HERE.
