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.

My Kind of Cheese
By Steve Betts

I've ordered this cheese twice now. The texture is incredible, the flavor is bold and sharp and everything I would want in a premier aged cheddar. As much as I love it on a sandwich or burger, I think my favorite way to eat this cheese is sliced small and placed on a good quality cracker.

I eat this cheese almost every morning .It is really good in grits , with eggs and ham or bacon. Sometimes i'll eat it with crackers as a snack. It is a great cheese. ( Grits , is a Southern dish.)
