This is a semi-firm, Old English style, aged bandage-wrapped cheddar. You'll find a clean crispness and a lingering fruit background. The sweet, creamy texture is like no other Cheddar. This cheese develops it's flavors as early as 6 months, but the flavor really pop at 10 months. With its semi-firm texture and body, Pastures is a great table cheese and holds its flavor profile when grilled in sandwiches or used in warm dishes. Serve this wonderful cheese with nuts, sliced salami, ham, dried fruit or slice in grilled cheese sandwiches. Pastures pairs very well with crisp, white wines, low-tannin reds, India pale ale, and bubbly ciders.
