honey chevre spread of shellbark hollow farm

Donna Demchur Levitsky (seen above) of West Chester's Shellbark Hollow was sweetly manning her cheesy station this Saturday at Phoenixville's Farmers' Market. Having the pleasure to encounter her whole goat milk cheese blends, I was incredibly impressed with the idea of her honey chevre spread as she suggested it paired perfectly with Asian pears.

Promoting a wild assortment of spreadable cheese smears, in addition to gorgeously jarred marinated chevres, a glorified stop at these freshly-aged, creamy offerings was undeniably a preview of what it could be like in my constant daydream of a cheese heaven.

Also to note, local chefs and mongers for the past several years have additionally spouted the brilliance of this locally-produced cheese, including Meritage, Nectar, Di Bruno Bros.
