Central Point, Oregon
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
- 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.
- A versatile cheese, it pairs nicely with a glass of bright Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, or alongside a variety of different ales.
