Frog Hollow's pears are grown and ripened on a thriving 133-acre farm that is certified organic with C.C.O.F. (California Certified Organic Farmers) in Brentwood, California, in the East Bay. It's a good one-hour drive from San Francisco and worth a picking trip during harvest season next year.

Frog Hollow promises that the Bellwether cheese was: "inspired while touring Italy, [when] Liam Callahan, Bellwether's farmer and cheese maker worked to create a distinctive cow's cheese that was mild yet full of 'fresh milk flavor.' An excellent table cheese, the Carmody enhances the vanilla notes of the Warren." Sustainable, tasty, handpicked beauty: this tasty box brings it.
