A Wisconsin original cheese! The first Colby was made in 1874 in Colby, Wisconsin. The cheese was named after the village. Longhorn is a style of American Colby cheese defined by its round, long, orange cylindrical shape. Similar in flavor to Cheddar, Colby is softer and has a more open texture and high-moisture content. Colby is made the same way as Cheddar except the curds are kept separate with cold water, which prevents them from knitting together. This gives Colby a more elastic texture than Cheddar. The distinctly mild flavor makes it ideal for grilled Cheese sandwiches.

By Kim Akers

In our home we eat a lot of cheese. This is the first time I've tried the Longhorn and I was awesome! It shreds great for tacos, burritos and salads but it is also delicious just as a snack. I will definitely make this part of my order each time!!!

My go to cheese
By Bill Magaha

This is what drives me to reorder. I have purchased this many times. This, in my opinion, makes the BEST grilled cheese sandwich.

Top Notch
By Janeen Blevins

Longhorn was a staple in my childhood memories, so when my 91 year old grandfather stated he was craving this delicacy, I wasted no time in going straight to the source! We were not disappointed. Delicious!
