Billings Farm Cheddar
Billings Farm cheese is a tangible and tasty symbol of the history and significance of the Billings Farm in Woodstock, Vermont – one of the oldest continuously-operating Jersey dairy farms in the country. For the first time in over 70 years, the Billings Farm is marketing a Billings dairy product made exclusively from the milk of its prize-winning Jersey cows. Drawing upon Billings Farm's 150-year tradition of dairy excellence, three varieties of high quality, handmade cheddar cheese – Sweet Cheddar, Butter Cheddar and Woodstock Reserve Cheddar – are being made from 100% raw milk from the Billings herd of over 40 purebred, registered Jersey cows.
Billings Farm Cheddar bears the coveted Queen of Quality label, which certifies that it is a highly nutritional, premium product made from 100% Jersey milk. Billings Farm is one of only 32 dairy farms nation-wide (nine in New England) that qualify for the “Queen of Quality” distinction issued by the American Jersey Cattle Association.
Butter Cheddar - also known as Butterkase, is mild and creamy with a slightly salty or acidic taste reminiscent of Muenster or Gouda cheeses. Known for its delicate flavor, it literally melts in your mouth at room temperature and is equally good on the cheese tray and for cooking.
Sweet Cheddar - boasts a sweet, full-cream flavor and is especially popular in the United Kingdom for its firm, yet creamy texture, with a pleasant savory taste
Woodstock Reserve Cheddar - the latest addition to the Billings Farm award-winning artisan cheeses. This selection is made exclusively from 100% Billings Farm raw milk. A pure delight of fine cheddar!
