Our Traditional Cheeses - all free of rBGH and GMOs!

In December 1993, Cedar Grove Cheese became the first in the country to assure its customers that its products were rBGH-free.  Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, or rBGH, is a synthetic hormone used by some farmers to increase milk production.  We believe that consumers wishing to avoid dairy products containing milk from rBGH-treated cows should have that choice.  Although the FDA has determined that rBGH is safe. many consumers have indicated that for a wide variety of personal, social or political reasons, they want to buy dairy products made from milk produced by untreated cows. Cedar Grove Cheese is committed to remaining rBGH-free and will continue to provide consumers with a clear and concise statement of our policy.  All farmers providing milk to Cedar Grove Cheese have pledged NOT to treat their cows with rBGH.  Wisconsin state law authorizes us to rely on those pledges and to inform consumers of the farmers' promises.

In January 2001, Cedar Grove Cheese decided that all its cheese should be made exclusively with non genetically modified organisms (GMOs).  We carefully select our cultures and enzymes based on the non-GMO status of the product. 

Our cheese is truly made the old-fashioned way!

Cheese Varieties
Havarti Buttery, slightly acidic flavor. Smooth, supple texture with tiny holes. Slice for sandwiches; shred in egg dishes; dice on salads.  An award winner!
Butterkaese Similar to Havarti but slightly softer and even more buttery.  
Colby First produced in Colby, Wisconsin in 1874. Mild flavor similar to Cheddar. Firm open texture with tiny holes. Slice for sandwiches; shred into casseroles; cube for snacks.
Marble Colby Colby and Monterey Jack combined to create a marbled effect of yellow and white.  A very attractive cheese.  
Cheddar Rich, nutty flavor becomes increasingly sharp with age. Smooth, firm texture becomes more granular and crumbly with age. Usually yellow; also available white. Slice for sandwiches, snacks; shred into casseroles, soups and sauces.
Cheddar with other flavors Garlic-Dill Cheddar, Tomato-Basil Cheddar, Garlic Cheddar, Cheddar with Vegetables and Herbs, Cheddar with Jalapeņo Peppers, Horseradish Cheddar
Farmers Style (soft-fresh to semi-soft) varies worldwide. Cedar Grove’s Farmers Cheese is similar to Havarti, but lower in fat (less than 2%). Buttery, slightly acidic flavor. Smooth, supple texture. Shred in potato dishes and casseroles; slice for sandwiches; cube for snacks.
Monterey Jack Delicate, slightly tart flavor. Creamy open texture. Slice for sandwiches; shred on casseroles, soups, and Mexican-style dishes.   
Pepper Jack Red and green jalapeņo peppers incorporated into the cheese.  Also available as Super Hot with jalapeņo and habanero peppers.  
Muenster Very mild flavor and smooth texture.  Good for melting on sandwiches.  
Swiss Nutty, bittersweet taste.  Large holes in cheese.  Good for slicing for sanwiches, and essential for Reubens!
Baby Swiss Milder flavor than Swiss.  Smaller holes make it easier to slice.  
Smoked Cheeses Our cheeses are smoked naturally at our local butcher, Straka Meats, over hickory chips.  This gives it a less intense but more authentic "smoky" taste than other cheese that is made with smoke flavoring.  We offer Smoked Medium Cheddar and Baby Swiss.  

All our cheese varieties are available by mail order!  Click here for more information.
