Smoked Hand-Braided Caciocavera - 4oz

Smoked Hand-Braided Caciocavera - 4oz


Slow-smoked with real Hickory Wood! Each cheese is braided by hand, brine salted then air dried to perfection by Lovera's small but dedicated cheese crew. The braids are then carefully smoked with smoldering logs of locally harvested Mockernut Hickory. Also, the Jersey cow milk used in making Lovera's braided cheese is hormone and pesticide free from family-owned single-source dairies.

First place winner of the 2017 American Cheese Society Annual cheese conference.

Orders containing perishables placed Thursday - Sunday will be shipped on the following Monday.
