Boxcarr in Seattle!

We recently took a trip to Seattle to meet with our new distributor, Petersons. They don’t yet have our cheese available but will soon be distributing Boxcarr throughout Portland and Seattle! We’re very excited to be signing on with them. We also had a great time exploring the city – and eating lots of cheese… Read more »

Sam & Fam in Seattle

Samantha, Mark, and lil Rosie were in Seattle last week! How fitting that they should come home to several weeks of rain. At least it isn’t as chilly here yet. She may have been out of the cheese room, but she definitely didn’t stay away from cheese! Here are some photos from the Calf &… Read more »

Sam & Fam at The Eddy Pub

Have you all heard of The Eddy Pub? Located in Saxapahaw, they serve dinner and brunch, offering a menu that features lots of local producers, including Boxcarr Handmade Cheese. Our Rosie’s Robiola is one of their options for the cheese and charcuterie plate. We love how they’ve incorporated many practices of sustainability into their business, and how everyone… Read more »

The Story of Weanling Button

Soon, we’ll be offering a new cheese in limited batches. It’s called “Weanling Button” and we would like to share the origin of its funny little name… Samantha has had goats for about 10 years and has loved them for even longer.

When we’re in Durham, we get our bread and pastry fix via Loaf, but these days we’re often running all over the place. Samantha recently had the opportunity to visit Boulted Bread in downtown Raleigh during one of her cheese deliveries, and totally fell in love with their beautiful, old-world-style baked goods. We appreciate the fact that… Read more »

Boxcarr Handmade Cheese in New York

Last week, Sam and Hilary took a trip up to New York to drop off cheese to places around the city, and to take part in an event with Piedmont Wine Imports in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Here are some photo highlights from our visit. Beautiful meat and cheese selection at the Greene Grape… Read more »

Our two Rosies

Sam and Rosie goat

Before there was this little Rosie bean… …there was this Rosie: Rosie the goat is our unofficial mascot. She might look like a normal goat, but really, she is super special. And, she’s tough: she’s had many near-death experiences. She’s survived a barn fire, a blood infection, a dog attack, and azalea poisoning. Even though… Read more »

A California Trip

In the midst of our wintry weather here in NC, it seems like a good time to share some pictures from Sam’s recent trip to California, where she enjoyed local produce and, of course, cheese!    

An interview with Samantha

Sam being a yogi on the street

This is the first in a series of interview posts we’ll be doing. We’ll be featuring Boxcarr Handmade Cheese staff members, other cheese-makers and farmers, and people we just want to talk about for some reason or another. It makes sense to kick off these posts with Samantha. She’s one of our two founders and… Read more »
