Old Drovers Road
11 40 $11.00 - $40.00
If you know where to look around here, there are remnants of this very old road. It is a path that went from the mountains down into the Piedmont that the Drovers (drivers of livestock, often hogs) would take to get to Charlotte to sell their livestock. I have walked this path and wondered the sights I would have seen long ago and what cheese the Drovers would have stowed away in their sack for the journey. Maybe it was something along these lines, a medium sharp cheddar style cheese, satisfying and comforting when you are away from home. This cow milk cheese has a naturally buttery color, a hint of sharpness and grassy notes. Comes in 1/2 lb, 1 or 2 lb wedges.
