Our classic Northwest-style cheddar is nutty and sweet, with a subtle tangy finish. As cheddar ages, it develops the distinctive “sharp” flavors and grainy texture. We offer Jefferson Cheddar in two different styles: Mild (aged a minimum of 30 days), and a sharper version, 1 Year (aged a minimum of 365 days).


Appearance: Pale buttery yellow-white

Texture: Moderately firm and sliceable; aged versions exhibit a more crumbly and crystalline texture

Taste: Nutty and sweet, with slight sharpness that increases with age

Suggested Pairings:

  • Delicious grated into a casserole or sliced on a sandwich. This cheese also shines on a cheese plate alongside dried cherries, pecans, walnuts, and cured sausage.

    This cheese is delicious! We stopped by the creamery and picked this bad boy up. We liked it so much that we went online to learn more about it. We got the 30-day age version and it is amazing! We look forward to trying the one your age next time.
