Gouda Cheese at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery
Our Lady of the Angels Monastery which is only minutes away from a certain quaint little Virginia bed and breakfast just west of Charlottesville? If your answer is, "yes", well, believe it. For all those nonbelievers, we can assure you that the proof is in the cheese. The faithful nuns at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Crozet, VA, near Charlottesville and just down the road from Sugar Hollow make 2-pound wheels of the best Gouda cheese you ever tasted.
If you are a city mouse and would like to be a country mouse if only for a day or so, head on out of the city and come stay at The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm, just a hop, skip and a jump from the monastery where you can purchase cheese destined to fulfill all your culinary expectations and satisfy every epicurean desire.
The proceeds from sale of this truly delicious cheese go to a most worthy cause for they provide the income that supports the sisters' lives of prayer and charity. Now, I cannot think of a better bang for your buck. In fact, we have given Our Lady of the Angels Monastery cheese often as Christmas presents to friends and family over the years. So, if you are thinking this may be the perfect gift during the holidays for someone with an appreciation of culinary delights, here's how:
Cheese may be purchased daily at the monastery (except Sundays and Thursdays) from 9-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m. One may also phone in an order (434-823-1452) or mail in an order form (found on their website). Not desiring to be too high-tech the nuns have not included online sales as part of their sales effort. The Christmas season is their busiest, so purchase now before it's gone. The 2-pound wheel is $25 when purchased at the monastery and $34 by mail.
Our Lady of Angels Monastery is a scenic country drive only minutes from The Inn at Sugar Hollow Farm to the monastery which sits high on a hill as the centerpiece of over 500 acres of beautiful pasture land. It will be a most pleasant visit for you when you stay with us and make a visit to the monastery one of your stops as you tour Charlottesville and its environs.
Once you've experienced the area, come on back to the Hollow for a relaxing evening and the most peaceful sleep you've had in years! Before we send you off down the Hollow, back to wherever you call home, we'll make you a tasty country breakfast (and we may even use Gouda Cheese). And, if you stay with us Sunday through Thursday nights from now through Wednesday, December 21st (excluding the Thanksgiving holiday November 23rd and 24) and purchase cheese from Our Lady of Angels Monastery, we'll discount your final bill by $25.00. Now that's a deal to make any city mouse head for the country. Come see us!
