Mecox Bay Dairy offers a lot more than cheese these days. At their farm shop in Mecox and at the various area farmers markets where they vend—including Sag Harbor (Saturdays 9 a.m.–1 p.m.) and Southampton (Sundays 9 a.m.–2 p.m.)—you can pick up a very special, one-of-a-kind cheese board. They begin at $25, and are $50 for mahogany and $200 for a very large (very impressive) board. All are handmade by disabled veteran Woody Wilson. The only maintenance they require is a little olive oil once in a blue (cheese) moon. And if that’s not enough to spice up your home, try some of their All Purpose Seasoning—only $10 for a big bottle. This stuff improves everything and is less than 3% sodium. And have you signed up to get one of their heritage breed turkeys for Thanksgiving yet? Gobble, gobble! Mecox Bay Dairy, 855 Mecox Road, Bridgehampton. 631-537-0335, mecoxbaydairy.com
