Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes


Farmer Gouda is a whole cow’s milk cheese made in Denmark. The creamy texture of this cheese can be attributed to the amazing quality of grazing pastures in Holland. The grass is greener, the milk is richer and so therefore, the cheese is creamier. Gouda has a semi-soft yellow paste, sprinkled with holes. At its young age, Gouda is mild in flavor, but it becomes sweeter and more intense as it ages.

Farmer Gouda is a wonderful melting cheese and is great for fondue, or for melting into side dishes like mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese. Gouda is also perfect for slicing and using in sandwiches. The buttery flavor compliments the spicy sweetness of dark breads best.

If you’re looking for a beverage pairing, opt for a red wine like a Merlot or a Napa. If wine isn’t your thing, Gouda, whether in a recipe or by the slice, goes great with a beer.

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.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
