Are You Ready for Soup and Sweater Season? So Are We!


If falling leaves and falling temperatures have you thinking about warm simple meals cozied up at home, then head to Farmview Market to pick up everything you need for a quick and delicious meal.

Artisan Select Soups are made fresh here in our kitchen and stocked with good-for-you ingredients like homemade broth, vegetables picked at their prime, and aromatic spices to make your house smell like you’ve been simmering soup all day! Pair them with an upgraded grilled cheese sandwich using Rock House Creamery and CalyRoad cheeses for a satisfying supper for one or an easy family favorite.

We’ve done all the hard work for you already with the soups, but here are a few pointers to make your grilled cheese sandwich the perfect accompaniment.

First, start with bakery-fresh bread from Farmview Market that stays crunchy and golden brown when cooked in a skillet. Next, make the shredded or spreadable cheese the very top and the very bottom ingredient, layering the extras thinly in between. And, finally, if the cheese is not quite to peak ooey-gooey when the bread is crisp and ready, turn the heat to low and set a lid on top briefly so everything melds together. Then cut your expertly prepared grilled cheese sandwich into dipping strips for the ultimate grilled cheese and soup experience.

A little bit traditional, a little bit fancy, these soup + sandwich combos are great for an easy dinner on the couch watching football or make light work of entertaining. Here are our favorite pairings for this fall season:

Tomato Basil Soup + Cranberry Orange Chevre Grilled Cheese

Cranberry Orange Chevre Grilled Cheese and Tomato Basil Soup
If you’re in the mood for an update on a classic coupling, start with Tomato Basil Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich made with CalyRoad Cranberry Zest Fresh Chèvre. For the soup, we combine plump juicy tomatoes and fresh herbs for a light and savory dish that’s sure to hit the nostalgic spot. Then you can get more creative with the grilled cheese beside it on the plate! CalyRoad’s goat’s milk cheese is the perfect spreadable cheese for slathering onto bread and melts together deliciously with salty slices of prosciutto and sweet orange marmalade. The cranberries in the cheese give a little chewiness for texture and make this a classic with a twist.


Vegetable Soup + Bacon Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Bacon Apple Cheddar Grilled CheeseFor a heartier meal still packed with wholesome ingredients (ok, except for the bacon!), curl up with a bowl of chunky Vegetable Soup prepared with corn, okra and everything else to make this healthy soup anything but boring. Serve a decadent Bacon Apple Cheddar Grilled Cheese with it by slicing up crisp Pink Lady and Granny Smith apples and layering them with Farmview bacon pieces and our exceptionally meltable Rockhouse Creamery Clack’s Chapel Cheddar. This is an unforgettable soup and sandwich combination sure to please everyone in your house!


Green Tomato Soup + Pear and Gouda Grilled Cheese

Pear and Gouda Grilled Cheese with Green Tomato SoupIf you’ve never tried Farmview Green Tomato Soup get ready for a new fall favorite! We start with firm, bright green tomatoes picked at the perfect time. Next, we blend them with country ham and tangy cider vinegar to bring out their earthy flavor. When this soup is on the menu at home, add something sweet on the side with a Pear and Gouda Grilled Cheese. Rock House Creamery Nanny Gouda Cheese is rich and nutty and combines with bright ripe pears, and baby arugula to add your daily dose of greens with a peppery bite.

Creole Soup + Tomato Bacon Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Tomato Bacon Cheddar Grilled Cheese with Creole SoupFor our final fall pairing try something different and full of flavor with our new Farmview Artisan Select Creole Soup. Local vegetables and the distinctive seasonings of the Caribbean come together in this tomato and pepper based soup. We like it alongside the traditional grilled cheese ingredients in a Tomato Bacon Cheddar Grilled Cheese. Ripe tomatoes, crisp bacon, fresh basil and shredded Clack’s Chapel Cheese meet to make a mouth-watering sandwich and round out the subtle spice in the soup.
