Birdie's Pimento Cheese
Handmade in Southern Virginia, Birdie’s Pimento Cheese is just as welcome at a wedding shower as it is at a tailgate. Familiar and unique at the same time, Robin and Glenn
(fondly known as Birdie & Bubba) have created four year round flavors and four seasonal flavors ranging from traditional to the unexpected.
It started with a simple tub of pimento cheese. When Robin Allen was growing up, there was always some in the fridge, and since it was easier to eat a spoonful of pimento cheese than to make a sandwich, she chose it for her go-to after school snack.
A revitalization grant brought a farmers market to the Allen’s home of South Hill, Virginia; and soon after catching the market bug, Robin and Glenn came up with a plan to sell three flavors of pimento cheese--just for one day--at the market, just to see what it was like. Turns out, they loved everything about it.
The town of South Hill, VA paved a clean path for Robin and Glenn to get their pimento cheese inspected and their business established, and after that first day--making new friends over pimento cheese, feeling the thrill of the sale, and selling out all 30 tubs of cheese they had in stock--Robin and Glenn had a hunch that this might be their next life. A few months later, they sold the printing business and started making Virginia’s pimento cheese full-time. Birdie’s Pimento Cheese was born. Now they sell at farmers markets, festivals, breweries, and retail stores all over central Virginia and beyond.
Currently in stock--Classic, Jalapeno and Smoked Gouda
DIETZ & WATSON
In 1922, our founding great-grandfather, Gottlieb Dietz, fled the crumbling economy of post-WWI Germany and planted his family roots in Philadelphia. Here, he perfected his skills as a sausage maker for nearly two decades before purchasing The Watson Meat Company in 1939. The original facility was located next to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge on the Delaware River in Philadelphia’s Old City. This historic neighborhood inspired many of the time-honored family recipes that are still used today.
Is there anything better than cheese? Probably, but it's either illegal or highly frowned upon.
Quality is our North Star. Integrity wins the day. Family is our heart and soul. Oh, and we make the best meat and cheese products that will ever grace your lips.
That’s because we believe that the moments shared over family meals are the moments that make life worth living.
Currently in stock--Bacon Horseradish, Champagne Cheddar,
Peppadew, Roasted Garlic & Smoked Gouda
