Our Top Cheeses of 2023

Our Top Cheeses of 2023

Okay, okay. We couldn't just pick our "Top Ten Cheeses of 2023" because, well, we have SO many good cheeses. Plus, as y'all know, we love to highlight both domestic and imported cheeses. Thus, we are presenting our Top 15 Cheeses in each category. We selected by total quantity sold (versus total revenue it brought in), and we kept it focused on our retail shop (so these numbers don't include cheese movement in our wholesale, trays, or events programs). Other factors that impact this list? We often don't have access to some of these cheeses year round or they're not in our case for some reason. (What that means, is you just need to keep coming in and asking what our fave bite of the moment is!) Without further ado, here were your top picks that you regularly purchased and walked out with in 2023. Thank you for helping us love and support artisanal cheesemakers. Blessed are the cheesemakers...as well as the consumers who enjoy their cheeses!
