I probably should have posted this sooner, as it’s a bit late to take advantage of today, which happens to be Small Business Saturday. The Saturday following Thanksgiving when those of us who care to support local and small can do some holiday shopping. A grand alternative to Black Friday (hack spit).
As i have explained previously, we do not ship our cheeses from Bifrost Farms. We’re honored that you want them and are willing to pay for the privilege (overnight shipping is a must for fresh cheese), but we’re guessing that wherever you are, there is a wonderful artisan cheesemaker closer than we are, and probably within driving distance. They deserve your business because it is you they are there for. And I’m even going to make it easy for you! Here are a sampling of the websites available to find those delicious cheeses in most states. Look them up, support them, buy from them. Thank you.
