About our Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP Cheese:

We sell a 24-36 month Mountain Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese! From the high slopes of the Apenini Mountains comes this finest quality parm - It’s all about what the cows eat! (And how the cheese is made, and how it’s aged, and how it’s cut ... should I go on?) In the winter, the cows are feed largely on hay harvested the previous growing season. The result is the lightest, most etherial parmigiano-reggiano you can imagine. In the Spring, the cows are just beginning to munch on early spring grass and wild garlic shoots. The result is a lighter flavor than summer cheese - although not as light as winter cheese - with a hint of spice and just the beginnings of that classic, heady Parm flavor we all love.  In the summer, the cows have been foraging all summer long, and the cheese reflects that. It has the stong and classic parmigiano-reggiano flavor we have all come to expect.

It is quite a treat the moment it arrives, the smooth feel along with the salt crystallization's. Yet, it is also retains the unique characteristics and flavors over time. Remember it’s a naturally aged cheese, so more aging is not inherently a bad thing. 

It can keep in your fridge for a long time. You can never have enough Parmigiano-Reggiano on hand in your cold-pantry. Think about shaving onto a plate of hot pasta, or as the farmers markets fill with spring crops, you can crumble spring Parmigiano-Reggiano on top. Late at night, if you feel inclined, it makes a spectacular, decadent, toasted cheese bread!

How the Parm Program Works:

We cut our wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP cheese and ship the same day. That way you get the freshest cheese possible - which means the best flavor. Once we sell 3/4 a wheel, we call our cutters and set a date. We try our best to estimate when we plan to cut and ship the cheese before that, based on past experience and how quickly the wheel is selling, but we cannot be certain. So, the initial date is an estimate, and may be pushed back. If you want your amazing parm sooner, tell your friends to buy parmesan cheese online too. The faster we sell a wheel, the sooner we cut and ship. I know the uncertainty can be hard for some - but in my mind mind well worth the wait.
