Our Featured Gourmet Raw Milk Cheese
Classic Reserve Extra Aged Cheddar is aged for about two years. The Classic Reserve is the signature product of Grafton Village Cheese Company and is the proud recipient of 13 different cheese awards.
It is a raw cow's milk cheese that has depth and a complexity of flavor that is appreciated by many cheese lovers. Aging gives the cheese a longer time to release its moisture, concentrating and developing its flavor. The extra-high butterfat milk of the Jersey cow has a creaminess that offsets the sharpness caused by the lactic acid in the cheese. read more...
Browse our great selection of International Gourmet Raw Milk Cheese. A cheese is considered a raw milk cheese when the milk used to produce that cheese, prior to setting the curd, has not been heated above 104°F. According to FDA regulations raw milk cheeses must be aged for 60 days or longer at a temperature of not less than 35°F. Is raw-milk cheese safe, does it taste better – a debate that is not going away any time soon if ever. Some believe that raw milk cheese does taste better; that the complexity of the organisms naturally occurring in raw milk deepens the flavor; that pasteurized cheeses can't really approach that. Others believe that the risk of contamination is too great and that many pasteurized cheeses are excellent and often award-winning while competing head-to-head with their raw milk brothers. The debate rages among cheese gourmands; try some raw milk cheeses and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
