Clothbound Cheddar

2017-04-03T13:50:09-04:00

This traditional English process – binding curds in cheesecloth, sealing with lard, and cave-aging over a year – give you a cheese with a flakey texture, woodsy flavor, and long, brothy finish. A standout on any cheese plate. Pairs perfectly with English ale, pickles, and strong mustard.
