FEATURED CHEESE OF THE MONTH
TRY THE CHEDDAR THAT STARTED IT ALL
Once called “Grand Opening Cheddar” this cheddar made its debut at the Creamery on our Grand Opening, May 8th, 2013. After it celebrated its 1st birthday the name changed to 12 month Aged Cheddar and it’s been delighting the crowds with its balanced flavor ever since!
HOW IT’S MADE
Once the cheddar curds are created they are then pressed over night into 40-pound blocks of cheese. These blocks are then stored in a climate-controlled cave for 12 months till the cheddar achieves the desired medium flavor. After the cheese has aged it is cut into smaller blocks and ready for the public to enjoy!
We keep it simple: Milk, Cultures & Salt
Our 12 month Aged Cheddar is creamy with a slight nutty flavor. It is a medium cheddar, but truly full of creamy cheddary flavor- yet without the bite that you’ll find in the sharper versions. Low in moisture, this cheddar is great on its own or with your favorite foods.
