Cowgirl Creamery: More Than Cheese

Cowgirl Creamery is known mostly as a cheesemaker and fromagerie, but you can fill your shopping basket with more than just expensive hunks of Neals Yard cheddar and Epoisses.

The store also stocks butters from Amish dairy farms (our favorite is the one-pound tub from Trickling Springs Creamery, which at $5 doesn’t cost much more—but tastes a lot better—than the mass-market stuff), goat’s-milk yogurt, and luscious homemade cottage cheese. The fromage blanc ($4 for eight ounces) is a fluffier substitute for cream cheese—great on a bagel but also delicious drizzled with honey.
