We are so happy to announce that our cheese is now on the menu at Elements, a great new restaurant in Chapel Hill. Chef Michael Chuong and the Elements team have been using our Farmer’s Cheese in their Caprese Salads, and it has become one of the most popular dishes in the restaurant! We love that Chef Chuong and his team are committed to showcasing great local North Carolina produce and products, and we are thankful that they have chosen to serve our cheese.

In an effort to make it easier for our customers to find out about our wholesale program, we’ve created a new wholesale inquiry sheet. It only takes a moment to fill out, and we will get back to you ASAP with cheese availability and pricing. We’ve even been known to work with our customers to make a custom cheese to fit their needs!

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!

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.

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!
