Princeton Eats, Cheese, and… Beer??



Cherry Grove Farm is proud to be featured in Princeton Eats this week!


“There’s something about cheese. Whether you dream about it, pair it with the perfect dish, or like it toasted, it’s a big part of our cuisine. Cheese is an essential part of many recipes and is very diverse, from bland, to sharp, and everything in between.”


Take a gander at their article, Cheese Making in Central New Jersey. You can also watch a short video clip of Sam, our Head Cheesemaker, discussing the surprisingly perfect way to pair beer with cheese.
