This is a class cheddar cheese, wrapped in cheesecloth as it slowly aged. The cloth ensured the cheddar retained its natural moisture while resting in Grafton’s own caves. This process results in a bold cheese with both nut and mushroom notes. The world took notice in November when this cheddar took Gold at the World Cheese Awards in England.
Grafton Village handcrafts artisanal cheddar cheese that is aged from one to four years. This award-winning cheddar is made from primarily Jersey cow milk — raw milk and hormone free — all from small Vermont family farms. Wisconsin native, and former Sendik’s employee, Dane Huebner is the cheesemaker.
