highlight at least one of our local cheeses. This wonderful dinner will all be

paired with wines of Spain. Dinner starts at 6:30 pm and requires reservations.

For more information, call: (919)286-9600.

Hillsborough Cheese Company is beyond pleased to have partnered with Jujube Restaurant in Chapel Hill, providing several cheeses for Chef Charlie Deal and his partner, Julian Benfey, to concoct some great new dishes (Watermelon Beet Salad with our amazing cow feta and a Cucumber Mango Salad with our Lebna). Jujube will also be using a select few chevre flavors, so stay tuned in the near future for those.  We have always been blown away by the quality and detail that Chef Deal brings; Jujube has been a favorite restaurant of ours since day one, and we couldn’t be more proud to help make it even more amazing. Jujube is opening a new tapas bar in Durham this summer called Juju, and we have no doubt it will be equally as successful as Jujube has been.  Make sure you grab a meal at Jujube now, and Juju later this summer!

Hillsborough Cheese Company is more than happy to announce (a month overdue!) a new partnership with Bin 54 in Chapel Hill!  Owned by George Bakatsias, a much loved and respected restaurateur,  Bin 54 is truly extreme fine dining, and it is located in Chapel Hill, at Glen Lennox.  Executive Chef Kevin Draper uses only the finest ingredients (that’s why he picked us, right?!), and always has a menu filled with mouth-watering morsels, which changes seasonally.  Chef Draper is currently using our goat cheese, as well as some of our aged cheeses, to compliment his menu.  If you are looking for a superlative dining experience for a special occasion, or just a lovely night out, go check out Bin 54!

If you’ve never tried a North Carolina fig then you’ve never lived!  Ok, well, they are pretty good and it’s wonderful that we can have even a short growing season for figs here.  They may not be as sweet as Mediterranean figs, but they still are tasty and local!  We will be bringing figs to market for the next few weeks, and there should be plenty! The trees are enormous and Cindy has been super busy picking them for you!  We’ve also mixed up a batch of customer favorite Honey Fig Chevre that we will be bringing to market for the next few weeks (well, bringing a different batch each time!).  Here are some photos to stimulate your taste buds!
