Bring on the fireworks! Our picks this month include a gold medal winning cheddar from Utah and a Barsha favorite brand, Alle Pia. Alle Pia makes the most delicious salamis in California, we chose their Sopressa salami which is zesty with a slight kick. We hope the July cheese club adds a nice spark to your picnic!
Beehive “Promontory” Cheddar, Utah
Promontory, as well as all Beehive cheeses, is made from the milk of Jersey cows from Ogden’s Wadeland South Dairy. Wadeland’s Jersey cows enjoy 350 acres near the salty marshes, ponds and mudflats of the mineral-loaded soil of the Great Salt Lake. The same nutrient-rich soil that feeds thousands of migrating birds, feeds the lush alfalfa that the cows love to eat.
Promontory is an Irish-style cheese with buttery, full-bodied texture and snappy, citrus-like fruity notes.

Alle Pia-Sopressa Salami, Cali
Each small batch of Alle-Pia products is created with love by the talented Antonio Varia, Chef and Owner of Buona Tavola Restaurants in San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles. Paso Robles Zin wine and cayenne pepper add zesty flavor without being too hot or spicy. Sopressa is known for having a more robust taste thanks to the amount of garlic and additional added spices like paprika and cayenne pepper.
Be sure to enjoy with your warm, crisp Barsha Baguette!
