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.

Delicious as always!
By Tom Frangicetto

Your cheese is outstanding as always. That's why I will keep coming back, despite the expense and, as a senior on a fixed income, I must watch how I spend my "mad money"! I do wish you would occasionally offer a senior discount or include a "10% off next purchase card" like the Wisconsin Cheese Mart does. Nevertheless, I will be back and order more of your delicious product. Thanks!

Excellent cheese. We will buy more.
