COWS Creamery Cheddar

The Story

The recipe for COWS Creamery Cheddar comes from the Orkney Islands, north of mainland Scotland.

The milk of Holstein Cows from the small local farms in the rolling hills of Prince Edward Island is gently heated but not pasteurized to allow beneficial microbes to thrive and give depth of character and flavor. The salt air and iron-rich soil of Prince Edward Island combine to add flavor and quality to this cheddar.
