It’s All In the Packing: Hand Waxed Cheddar

Cheddar cheese is aged from three months to three years with longer aging time producing sharper cheeses.  All of our cheddar cheese is packed by hand, taking forty pound blocks out of aging and cutting them into eight ounce bars.  Much time and attention is given to the cheese at this time.  We enjoy making homemade cheese balls and spreads with our cheddar cheese that is trimmed.  These trimmed “ends” are also available in our retail store at a discounted price.  Cheddar cheese then moves into the waxing area where every bar of cheese is coated in clear wax and then two coats of a colored wax.  Each colored wax identifies a different type of cheddar cheese.  The wax dries very quickly, the bars are labeled, and ready to go for sale.

Cheddar Cheese history

Cheddar is the name of the cheese, the name of the gorge in England where this cheese originated and the name of a step in the make procedure that differentiates this family of cheeses.
