Extra Old Cheddar
The COWS CREAMERY Extra Old Cheddar recipe has its roots from the Orkney Islands, which is north of Scotland.
The COWS CREAMERY Extra Old Cheddar is aged for at least 18 months and is made from the milk of cows from the rolling countryside of Prince Edward Island, by the makers of COWS Ice Cream.
All of our milk comes from small local farms around P.E.I and given that no point on the island is no more than 20 miles or so from the sea, with the salt air and the iron-rich red soil, all these things combine to add flavor and quality to the product.
