July Cheese of the Month – Sharon Hollow!
This month we are throwing the spotlight on an uber-fresh cow’s milk cheese that is perfect for a lazy summer day! Made from Michigan milk that’s hand-ladled and spiked with savory chopped garlic and Tellicherry peppercorns or chives. Crisp, clean, milky flavor that’s perfectly accentuated by the herbs.
All month long, Sharon Hollows are only 2 for $10!
What to Do with a Sharon Hollow?
- -Top off the cheese with a little honey and toasted nuts and serve for breakfast
- -Enjoy the fresh flavor of the cheese simply with a crusty baguette
- -Stuff into Spanish piquillo peppers with some sea salt, broil, and hit it with a touch of good olive oil
- -Stuff into pasta shells and bake in homemade sauce
- -Crumble into scrambled eggs or omelets at the last minute
- -Melt atop steaming hot baked potatoes
- -Use it on roasted veggie sandwiches or panini
- -Let your imagination run like wild horses!

If you aren’t familiar with this publication, Culture magazine is one of the oldest dedicated to the art of cheesemaking. They have published countless articles that are worthy of being in queue on any cheese-lover’s reading list. Earlier this year, Matt Rubiner of Rubiner’s Cheesemongors & Grocers in Great Barrington, MA came out to spend some time with us and wrote a great article on his adventures with the Creamery. Filled with drool-inducing shots of cheese and some expert wordsmithing, I’d love to invite you all to read the full piece.
Culture was kind enough to post a PDF of the article for you to download if you’d like to check it out. Thanks, guys!
Who We Are
Zingerman’s Creamery is dedicated to crafting handmade cheeses and gelato using traditional methods to both honor the rich tradition of the art of cheesemaking and create the most full-flavored products we can. Using local milk from both Calder Dairy and Green Meadow Dairy, low-temperature pasteurization, and lots of time to draw out and enhance the amazing flavors of the milk, we make our products to-order every week for our wholesale customers and our Cheese Shop.
We think all of that adds up to cheese and gelato with flavor that truly stands out. But while we may think you can really taste the difference, the only taste that truly matters is your own. We’d love to share a taste of what is exciting us for the day, or something that looks intriguing to you, whatever it is, everything you buy from us is 100% guaranteed. If you aren’t happy with your purchase, just let us know and we’ll get you another slice or scoop on us, or refund your hard-earned cash!
