Raw Cheese Week at the Co-op!

Join us from April 18 to April 24 for sales and samples on raw milk cheeses in honor of Raw Milk Cheese Appreciation Day on Saturday, April 20th.

Traditional raw milk cheese-making has existed for centuries and reflects characteristics of local environments, terroir, and flavors. Cheese can be part of a healthy eating pattern, providing nutrients like protein and calcium, and raw milk cheese in particular has been associated with beneficial gut bacteria. If you want to purchase raw milk cheese in the United States, it must have been aged for a minimum of 60 days, whether it’s produced domestically or imported from another country. The “60 days rule,” which was designed to allow the acids and salt in cheese enough time to destroy harmful bacteria, was set back in 1949.

Enjoy samples and sales on the following cheeses: Mt Sterling Co-op Creamery Raw Milk Goat Cheddar, Roth Buttermilk Blue Affinee, Grafton Village Raw Aged Cheddar, Vintage Cheese Company Chipotle Cheddar, Edelweiss Raw Milk Gouda, Organic Valley Grass Milk Sharp Cheddar and Medium Cheddar, El Trigal Raw Manchego, and Fayette Raw Horseradish Cheddar Spread.
