Founded in 1848 by the Klessig family, the Saxon Creamery is a fifth generation dairy farm committed to ethical treatment of cows and land preservation. Their dairy is located three miles from the creamery, making sure the milk is always incredibly fresh under the guide of Master Cheesemaker Jeff Mattes (below).
Crafted with limited-availability milk (high in protein and cream), this handcrafted cheese is sweet and slightly tangy with toasted nut flavors.
Fruity and crisp cheddar with caramel notes. Pastures won 2nd Place in the 2010 American Cheese Society contest; 5th Place in the Bandaged Cheddar Class at the 2011 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, and 2nd Place at the American Cheese Society Awards. American Cheese Society 2014 Winner!
Aged for a minimum of three months, Big Ed’s Gouda has a creamy texture and a sweet, nutty finish. American Cheese Society 2014 Winner!
Saxon switched their dairy farm from confinement to rotational grazing in the 1980’s. They found that cows were happier and started producing better milk.
