Description

This hand-crafted cheddar is made from the milk of Holstein cows raised in the rolling countryside of Prince Edward Island. Unpasteurized milk is gently heated to preserve the beneficial bacteria in raw milk that give cheddar its characteristic depth and flavour. A cloth is applied to the exterior of the wheels allowing the cheese to breathe and develop a rich, robust flavour as it ages.
