~Bayou Blue Louisiana Blue Cheese~

Bayou Blue - Louisiana Blue Cheese - This is a pasteurized cow's milk cheese. This subtle blue cheese is aged 1-2 months, with a soft, deep blue rind and a creamy white paste. This cheese is named in honor of our Louisiana Bayou Country.

~Chocolate Pecan Butter~

Smooth & creamy and sinfully delicious. Add a gourmet touch to breakfasts, snacks & desserts.

~Holy Cow - Vache Sante'~

Holy Cow - Vache Sante' - This bloomy rind cow’s milk cheese builds its tremendous flavor characteristics through longer aging. Although a triple cream, the one-and-a-half to three pound catch weight size allows the cheese to slowly soften over a ten to twelve week period without achieving a molten state. Perfect for cheese trays, eating alone, or as an added flavoring to rich lobster or oyster bisque, no wonder it’s named Holy Cow!

Feliciana Nevat -Our soft-ripened cow and goat's milk cheese is patterned after the Catalonian Nevat from Spain. The name Nevat comes from a Catalan word for snow and refers to the powdery rind and mountain-like shape of the cheese itself. Bittersweet Plantation Dairy chose to name its version "Feliciana" a Spanish word for happy land. The Feliciana parishes were so named by Don Bernardo de Galvez, an early governor of the then Spanish Louisiana colony. The beautiful rolling hills found there are the closest thing to mountains the Bayou can claim, though they are seldom sprinkled with snow.
