For Sales and Inquiries
~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
