Inspired by the classic English clothbound cheddars, Georgia Gold is our most popular cheese. After cheddaring, salting, and pressing, we wrap the 30-pound truckles in cheesecloth and paint the exteriors with pork lard. With periodic flipping and brushing, Georgia Gold tends to be beautifully developed at five months, but we let a select few age for a year or more. When ready to eat, Georgia Gold has a crumbly texture with a brothy flavor. As the cheese ages, little bits of crunch can be savored in each bite.
We are proud to be the only cheddar handmade in the state of Georgia.
