For our Produce Pick of the Month, we don’t have to travel very far. Yellow Tree Ripe Premium Peaches are grown in California, Michigan and Colorado and are the second biggest commercial fruit crop in the U.S. Perfect tasting in every aspect, these peaches are a must have fruit. Traveling to Boulder, Colorado for our Cheese Pick of the Month lands us in the hands of Haystack Mountain. Here we explore Red Cloud Cheese, which is complex, nutty, and creamy all at the same time. Firm with a nice bite; this cheese is one of their most popular and award winning.
