“A cheese may disappoint. It may be dull, it may be naive, it may be oversophisticated. Yet it remains, cheese, milk’s leap toward immortality.” —Clifton Fadiman

Forget about Six Degrees of Separation,  now we’re just two degrees away from running the whole country!

We’ve talked about Cooperstown Cheese before, the cheesery where we make Beekman 1802 Blaak. This year as part of the presidential inauguration ceremony, the White House chef chose exceptional artisanal products from throughout the country to serve as part of the inaugural meal.

Cooperstown Cheese’s delicious Jersey Girl received the honor of being served as part of the dessert course.  And get this!  The milk used to make the cheese comes from Stone House Farm in Sharon Springs—the dairy farm owned by Farmer John’s sister and brother-in-law!

We think this gives us a strong enough platform to run for the Presidency.  Right?

Can hardly wait for my trip up to Sharon Springs this summer! I will put Cooperstown Cheese on my list of places to visit!
Congratulations Bob and Sharon!


Congratulations to Cooperstown Cheese and Stone House Farm! Such an honor for them. Congratulations also to 3 winemakers from the Finger Lakes region of New York (Red Newt, Fox Run and Anthony Road). Their collaborative effort, a 2010 Tierce Dry Riesling, was also served at the inaugural luncheon. New York State wines and cheeses are some of the finest!
