Our Cheeses

wholesaleThe Grafton Village line includes distinctive cheddar cheeses that have been aged for up to five years, plus a selection of flavored cheddars. Our Cave Aged line is made of cow, sheep and mixed milk original cheeses that are cave-aged at our Grafton facility and vary with each season.

All of our cheeses are free of artificial hormones and antibiotics. The rennet used is microbial, making our cheeses vegetarian approved.

Grafton Cheddar

Our Grafton Village line of aged cheddar is handmade using traditional methods, using primarily Jersey cow’s milk, known for its high protein and butterfat content. Our flavored cheddars are done so with natural ingredients. Our traditional cheddars are aged from one to five years, sometimes longer. The more the cheese ages, a stronger “bite” is developed.

Cave Aged Cheddar

Taking us beyond our roots in cheddar, these small batch cheeses are carefully matured in our aging caves in Grafton. Our Cave Aged line includes cow’s milk, sheep’s milk and mixed milk cheeses that evolve with the seasons.

Sage Cheddar

A deeply herbaceous flavored cheddar, seasoned with hand-rubbed Dalmatian sage and sage oil. This otherwise buttery and sweet cheese is a smooth palate to play up the earthy and vegetal aromas of sage, which are reminiscent of summer garden and autumn forest all at once.

Very meltable, this cheese adds the essence of sage in browned butter to any cooked dish. Liven up a grilled cheese, roasted turkey sandwich or muffaletta. For heartier fare, use Sage Cheddar to add earthy aromas to potato gratin, mushroom quiche, or macaroni & cheese.
