Everything’s better with Cheddar.  Cheese is hand cut and sealed, approximate weight will vary.

Cheddar Cheese is a hard yellow colored cheese which was originally created in the town of Cheddar in England. In the late 1800's Wisconsin produced more Cheddar cheese than any other variety. Today Wisconsin is the leader in the United States for Cheddar cheese production.  To make Cheddar Cheese, the cheese curd goes through an additional process called Cheddaring, which involves heating the curd and kneading it with salt. After this process, the curd is cut to remove whey and stacked for aging. 

Sharp Cheddar has the most distinct "bitter" flavor of any cheddar cheese. This flavor is created during the long aging process required to make Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

Why age cheddar? Cheddar cheese gets sharper as it ages, and is one of the best-loved cheeses in America. It goes great with apple pie, as a topper for nachos or burgers, or with fruit. But this cheese also stands alone! It is one of our most popular for cheese trays and wine tastings.
