Our Cheeses

The 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.

Grand Reserve Cheddar

Grafton Grand Reserve Cheddar highlights the best features in our aged cheddar. Hand-selected for exceptional flavor and texture when young, resulting in a robust, savory, slightly sweet cheddar that is well-balanced and complex. Hints of whiskey appear during the lingering finish.

This is a cheese with character, that deserves to be savored. When pairing, choose similarly strong-flavored foods or beverages: whiskey or hearty beers; dried tart cherries; roasted meats; mustard; spicy salumi. Grand Reserve Cheddar can be grated or crumbled over food to add a zesty sharpness to a hearty salad or bowl of chili.
