Portioning some Jalapeño Chevre for market


Our figs are coming in strong!


We stretch our fresh mozzarella by hand every week.

We are excited to announce that starting in August we’ll be putting out a monthly newsletter chock full of all the happenings here at Hillsborough Cheese Company. You can expect cheese trivia, notes on which hard cheeses will be available over the next month, recipes (both from us and from our customers), photos, and more! We might even do a few cheese giveaways….but you won’t know if you don’t sign up!

Sign up here!

We’re getting ready to launch a new monthly newsletter and we want to include customer recipes. Do you have a favorite dish that uses Hillsborough Cheese Company cheese? We’d love to share it with others, giving you full credit of course. You can e-mail your recipes to hillsboroughcheeseco@gmail.com.

This is a wheel of our Chicken Bridge, a manchego-style cheese made with raw cow’s milk and aged 5-6 months.

All those hours of lifting heavy milk buckets, stretching mozzarella, and washing dishes until our fingers bleed have paid off! We are so honored to be a Finalist for Best Local Cheese Producer in The Independent Weekly’s Best of the Triangle Readers’ Poll. We have amazing customers, and it means to so much that they have voted for us.

Win or lose, you can come celebrate with us at the Best of the Triangle Party on June 5th at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham.

Thanks again!

Tomorrow, Saturday May 5th, we’re making our debut at the South Durham Farmer’s Market! We are so excited to be a part of Durham’s newest farmers market. We hope this will offer our old customers a new location to get their cheese fix, and we’re looking forward to meeting new customers!

We’ll have lots of cheese at the South Durham Farmers Market tomorrow, but to celebrate our debut we’ll be bringing two special cheeses – a seasonal strawberry chevre made with local strawberries and an aged raw cow’s milk gouda studded with caraway seeds!

(If you don’t live in South Durham never fear – we’ll also be at the Chapel Hill Farmers Market, Western Wake Farmers Market, and Eno River Farmers Market on Saturday)

A sea of blue cheese.
