Browse our great selection of Firm Texture Gourmet Cheese. Firm cheeses become harder and more concentrated with age. Firm cheeses have a lower moisture content than the softer cheeses as they lose as much as 15% of their weight as they age, which deepens their flavor. Many firm cheeses are made in the mountain regions. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
