Named for its domed shape, Coupole is dense and creamy and has a mild, wrinkly rind that contributes to yeasty and nutty flavors. Coupole's paste is delicate and citrusy with a fudgy texture that contrasts with the flavor of the rind. Founded in the 1980s by Allison Hooper and Bob Reese, Vermont Creamery started with a delicious fresh chevre and has continued to grow to offer an ever-expanding array of dairy products. Over 30 years later, and with more than 100 national and international awards, Vermont Creamery produces some of the most revered goat cheeses in the United States.

Pawlet is a workhorse cheese. It is great on a cheese platter, delicious for a quick snack and excellent for melting into just about any recipe. Made from raw, Jersey cow's milk Pawlet has a yielding semi-soft texture and flavors that are grassy, buttery, nutty and slightly meaty. Fun fact- in 1864 Consider Bardwell Farm was the site of America's first dairy cooperative. They produced cheddar which was loaded onto railcars and sent to New York City. The farm is now owned by Angela Miller and her husband, Russell Glover.
