Happy Cow Cheese
Happy Cow is now selling cheese made with milk from their own cows. We have in stock their soft mozzarella and feta cheese made from Happy Cow milk. We do not keep all Happy Cow brand cheeses in stock, but you can order them on the page for Happy Cow in the order book. You can also call the Co-op and leave a message with your order before 8 a.m. Monday when Happy Cow orders are placed. Available cheeses include: hard mozzarella, havarti, muenster, provolone, cranberry jalapeno (may be seasonal), cream cheese, gouda, blue cheese crumbles, smoked horseradish, yellow cheddar (white cheddar not available at this time). If you have questions about ordering Happy Cow products, contact Lori Pierce at the Co-op on Mondays between 10-2, or call her at 864-843-2584.
We still have a good supply of Palmetto Harmony CBD oil and salves. Prices have come down significantly on their products.

Updated COVID-19 Reminders – We are still following safety protocols
As you know we are still following all of the recommended CDC guidelines for keeping people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently very short staffed, so in addition to wanting to keep everyone safe and healthy, we also need to be mindful that the co-op operations are in danger of shutting down if our mangers become ill.
Given the recent surge in cases as well as anticipated increases during the winter, and due to the holidays, we want to share a few important reminders:
What we ask you to do:
- If you are feeling sick at all (fever or not), Please do not come into the store.
- If you know you have been exposed to COVID-19, DO NOT come into the store. The CDC guidelines call for staying home for 14 days after you’ve been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19. See this link for more information: What to Do If You Are Sick | CDC
- If you cannot or will not wear a mask, we will provide curbside pickup for you in order to keep our managers healthy.
The rest of the original protocols still apply:
- Wash your hands when you arrive and leave
- Maintain a social distance of 6 feet when possible, particularly from anyone who is coughing or sneezing
- Try to only touch the products you plan to purchase.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- You should also stay home if you have had to take simple medications, such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin, which may mask symptoms of infection.
