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.

Cheddar Cheese 5 Year Old Extra Sharp!
By Ronald Pniewski

Absolutely Fabulous! My new cheese forever and ever

Wilz thotz
By William Ouellette

Exceptional cheese. This one retains some of the creaminess of the lesser aged cheeses, adding just a touch of that crumbliness that comes with age and a nice sharp bite. I love it and can't wait to try the 7 year aged cheddar.

Smooth and perfect
By Brenda Thorne

Great cheddar. We finished this one on the patio with a neighbor 6 feet apart. What a delightful treat! We'll be ordering more. We're in isolation and need a fabulous treat. This was excellent!
