Shipping Notes


Extra Aged Farm Gouda is a cow’s milk cheese, made in the southern regions of the Netherlands. It has been in production for over 800 years. Extra Aged Gouda is rare and very highly sought after.

When it is younger, Gouda has a strong pungent flavor. As it ages, it becomes sweet and almost caramelizes. The flavor is most often described as butterscotch. Aged Gouda may be allowed to ripen for three, five, or even seven years. During the aging process small crystals of calcium lactate form in the cheese and can give the cheese a crunch. The crystals are perfectly safe to eat and occur naturally in most aged cheeses.

If you are looking for a wine pairing, try a port and enjoy this cheese as a dessert or a Pinot Gris. If you enjoy hard liquor it’s also interesting paired with a gin based cocktail like a martini.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
