Description

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.

We received our cheese on Saturday in time for the Ball games. Terrific, delicious, and as great as we anticipated. We highly recommend the Colby half loaf order.

Longhorn Colby
By Alan Linnebur

I grew up in Kansas in the 50s when Longhorn cheese was always available in grocery stores and I enjoyed its texture and flavor. Since then I've lived on either the east or the west coast and never found Longhorn again. So, the arrival of my order was welcome and the flavor and aroma of the cheese brought back good memories. It tastes great and I have to make a cheese melt soon but even the cheese alone is a treat.
