Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

This Canadian made Cheddar cheese is considered to be equal parts artistry and mad science. The cheese makers aspire to a superior goal of a finished product; crisp and clean flavor with an appealing sharpness and hints of caramel and fruit; a perfect crumble and a heavy texture. But at the same time they need to know the logistics, how to heat the milk, just enough to pasteurize it but not to kill off all of the wonderful flavor creating bacterium, and to account for all of the variables that inevitably arise, like slight changes in the milk brought about by climate, season, feed or pasture conditions.

The combination of skill and intuition pays off in the end, supported by the diligent quality control habits and tireless attention to detail.

This cheese is cured for at least three years, maturing into a robust and distinctive creation, truly unique from any other cheddar.

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
