This 1 Year Cheddar Bar is a younger, sweeter version of Grafton Village’s flagship 2 Year Cheddar. Smooth and creamy, it has a mild profile that contains flavors of brown butter, cooked milk, and ripe apples. This young cheddar is perfect for both snacking and cooking, so melt it down for a grilled cheese sandwich or serve it up with fresh fruit, Sidehill Farm Strawberry Jam, and Firehook Sea Salt Crackers.

“This is my go-to snacking cheese. If you’re looking for an approachable cheddar for any occasion, this is the one. Its creamy texture and sweet flavor make it an easy pairing for just about anything, but I usually serve it with Z Crackers Everything Good Crackers and a dollop of Murray’s Heirloom Apple Butter for a bold, autumn-inspired bite.”

When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
  • The Grafton Village Cheese Company was founded in Vermont in 1892 by a collective of dairy farmers looking to turn surplus raw milk into cheese. Such cooperatives were common in rural communities in the late 19th century.
  • Today, Grafton Village is one of few producers in the Northeast that produces raw milk Cheddar.
  • Their flavorful cheeses are made primarily from the high protein, high butterfat milk of Jersey cows.
  • A non-profit organization, Grafton Village is overseen by the Windham Foundation as part of their efforts to promote rural communities.
