2006 World Cheese Award winner.
For the biggest flavor and crumbliest texture of Grafton’s Aged Cheddar collection, the 4 Year Old Aged is the right choice. While crumbly, the texture is consistent throughout and works well atop crackers and toasted rounds. Intense and flavorful, but not overpowering cheese lovers who love “sharp” will sing its praises!
Of all the Vermont Artisan Cheese we offer, this remains the favorite of our own Sam Cutting III who has been choosing Dakin Farm cheese for over 50 years. According to Sam, nothing beats classic, hand crafted, whole milk, Vermont cheddar naturally aged for a very long time under perfect conditions. We select our four year old cheddar from Grafton Village Cheese Company’s inventory to provide you with a private stock cheese that will speak to you with a pronounced, sharp flavor with a clean finish.
