Does anyone know where I can buy Ben's farmer cheese?

    I have just discovered the joy of eating farmer's cheese, which I have not had since I last ate in my grandmother's house too many years ago...so far have tried Whole Foods, which sells chunks in their own containers. Good quality. And packaged Friendship, which was terrible and off-tasting. SO..where in Manhattan can I buy top quality..Ben's or other..

      The farmer cheese at Fairway is quite good. I'm not sure if it is Ben's because they "cut" it to order for you at the cheese area. They do sell Ben's natural cream cheese, so perhaps they sell the farmer cheese as well.

        East Village Cheese carries Ben's Farmer Cheese.

          Russ and Daughters? I know they have very fresh farmer cheese.
