Happy American Cheese Month from the Greene Grape!

As New York City’s shelter in place drags on, we focus on the little things to look forward to—the weather is getting warmer, spring produce is ramping up (pun intended), and best of all, May is American Cheese Month!

American Cheese Month is a grassroots celebration of all the incredible cheeses that the country has to offer, and the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, and cheesemongers who help bring them to you. We had such an incredible response to our last cheese-focused newsletter—a huge THANK YOU to anyone who purchased American-made artisan cheese online or in store at the counter! Your support of the cheese industry means the world to us, and helped the Greene Grape support countless local farms and creameries in their time of need. 

These days, you might find our selection overwhelming. With so many delicious options available, it’s hard to know just which one is perfect for your snacking or cooking needs. Fear not, because your friendly Greene Grape cheesemongers are here to help! We have extensive knowledge of our entire cheese lineup and can help you pick out exactly what you need. If you’re unable to shop in store, email us at info@greenegrape.com with any cheesy questions. 

If you’re unable to pick just one, we have a solution for you, too! Introducing the All-American Cheese Box, available on our website to add to your grocery delivery order for just $64.99. Our expert cheesemongers will curate a selection of their 5 favorite American cheeses, perfectly paired with locally sourced jam and other accoutrements! Will you get a pillowy-sweet chevre Snowball from Sage Farm Goat Dairy (VT), or a buttermilk-briny Bowhead Blue from Mystic Cheese Co. (CT)? How about the staff favorite crystalline-caramel Dairyere Reserve (what a name!) from Cato Corner Farm (CT), or the double cream beer-infused Hops from Tulip Tree Creamery (IN)? The possibilities are endless and satisfaction is guaranteed! Most of our selections are delightfully seasonal as well, bringing bright, floral, and fresh spring flavors right to your kitchen table. 

Quantities are limited, as many of these cheeses are handmade in small batches, so be sure to order your All-American Cheese Box today and support domestic cheesemakers!
