Firm Texture Gourmet Cheese

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.

Picture of seahive cheese
SeaHive is one of Utah based Beehive Cheese Creamery best sellers. This cheese represents the local flavors of Utah; the use of the regional flavors of milk, honey and salt solidifies this sentiment and every bite will remind you of that. What makes SeaHive so unique? It begins with pasteurized Jersey milk, then covered with the locally harvested wildflower honey from a local farm and rubbed with sea salt from an ancient sea bed near Redmond, Utah. Artisanal SeaHive cheese received a 3rd place award at the 2011 American Cheese Society Competition. Try this cheese in your recipe that call for melting cheese, like grilled cheese, sauce, mac and cheese. read more...
