GRAFTON VILLAGE Domestic cheddar cheese Grafton Village Cheese Co. is located in the small, picturesque village of Grafton, Vermont, where cheesemaking began in 1892 as a cooperative of local farmers. Grafton is a Windham Foundation-owned (non-profit) enterprise, supporting Vermont’s rural communities through grants, programs and social enterprises. Our products include aged cheddars matured as long as four years; distinctive flavored cheddars; and specialty cave-aged cheeses with cow, sheep and mixed milks. We produce small-batch cheese made by hand using traditional methods and unpasteurized milk for our characteristic flavor profile. An individualized grading process delivers cheese at its optimum age. We choose high butterfat, high protein milk from small local farms, which produces a creamy cheddar texture throughout the aging process. BELGIOIOSO CHEESE Domestic cheese BelGioioso Cheese is a family owned and operated company based in Green Bay, Wisconsin since 1979. Over a century ago, the great-grandfather of BelGioioso President, Errico Auricchio, founded the cheese company based on a philosophy of excellence. He moved his family from Italy to America with one goal—to craft the best Italian cheese in the United States. BelGioioso’s commitment to tradition and excellence carries with it the value of knowing how to make Italian cheeses just as they were long ago. • Freshest Wisconsin milk collected daily • All natural, rBST free, antibiotic free • Artisan production: natural salt brining, Belgioioso grown starter cultures, traditional air drying rooms Tradition, selection of ingredients, location and artisan inspiration, are cardinal pillars that make BelGioioso cheesemakers the greatest interpreters of the best Italian cheeses in the U.S. 74 CHEESE KEY: = SUSTAINABLE = LOCAL = USA
