Classico

Classico is our flagship and most decorated cheese. This semi-hard, farmstead cheese has a flavor of brown butter and roasted nuts. A hint of honeysuckle lingers on the palate. It is a cheese that you just can’t get tired of. It quickly becomes a “must have” and is a great choice for any culinary occasion. You don't have to take our word for it. The cheese aficionados of the world think it's pretty darn tasty! It is an award-winner many times over! American Cheese Society’s Gold Medal Winner in 2007, 2008 and 2009, and a 1st Runner Up to Best in Show at the US Championship in 2009.
