Weight: 0.50lbs

Wisconsin is leading in Cheddar production, which makes it no surprise that this Cheddar is one of our most popular cheeses. This Wisconsin Cheddar has been aged for over 7 years, giving it a rich flavor and slightly tangy bite. As cheddar ages it loses its smooth, firm texture and becomes more granular and crumbly. This is a traditional Wisconsin golden colored cheddar. The sharp flavor makes this cheese perfect for any beer or wine tasting, gives sandwiches a delicious zing, and can even be paired perfectly with gourmet sausage.

Great Taste!
By John Swift

This 7 year extra sharp cheddar is the best tasting cheddar we have found in our search of sources all over the country. We only wish that it was available in pieces larger than a half pound. You can't go wrong working with this store.

Our favorite cheese
By Lee Swift

This is our favorite cheese, crumbly and tangy. Don't need that much to get the best taste of a sharp cheddar. If you have never had real sharp cheddar this is the one to get. Fantastic taste, great with sliced apples, on top of apple pie ( our favorite). You can't go wrong with this cheese for a tangy, tart cheddar.
