Aged Cheddars

Aged Cheddars

Aged Cheddars made in New England

These rare cheeses are not for the faint of heart. They are sharp, sharp, and sharper. As Joel says, "they make a man sit up and take notice". These farmhouse cheddars are aged 3,4,5, or even 6 years and offer a complex taste and texture only achieved by proper aging.

Cheddar Facts

  • The name "Cheddar" is taken from a small town in England where cheese of this type was first produced over 400 years ago
  • It takes over 10 gallons of milk to make 1 LB of Cheddar
  • An average Holstien cow produces 6 gallons of milk per day
  • Our Cheddar taste best if served at room temperature but will store well in your refrigerator for months if tightly wrapped
  • Mold may develop on the surface but will not penetrate the cheese or spoil it, simply cut of the molded area and enjoy the rest
  • Freezing will not effect the flavor but it will alter the texture and consistency significantly, store wrapped tightly in the refrigerator
