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 5 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.

For my husband
By Laura Peck

My husband received this for a Christmas present, but an early one. He is raving about how delicious this cheese is, and more telling, doesn't want to share with anyone. The cheese arrived early and in great condition. I would highly recommend this cheese to anyone who loves good cheese.

My husband love s this cheese! Makes a great Christmas gift to! Wisconsin cheese mart is great with their orders , they do not waste time getting the cheese to you! Thanks Wisconsin Cheese!!

By Laura Peck

The order arrived safely and in tiptop shape. The cheese is perfection; sharp, crumbly, with a little crunch and a complex flavor; you can't compare it to cheese from local stores. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes a sharp cheddar.
