Introducing our new initiative, “The Giving Gouda,” supporting the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank! Now through the end of December, for every pound of cheese purchased through our online retail shop, we will donate a pound of our new "Giving Gouda" to the Food Bank!  Buy 6 lbs. of cheese, we'll donate a whole wheel!

While this initiative is good for all of the cheeses in our online shop, we couldn't exactly create a new cheese & not share it with you!  And we think you'll really love the approachability of this gouda-style cheese.

While you may think of Gouda and only picture the red wax coated form in the supermarket, the term "Gouda" refers more to the style of cheesemaking than the actual cheese.  Similar to our Gouda-style beer cheeses, this is a "washed curd" cheese, but rather than washing the curds in beer, these are washed with water.  This helps remove extra lactose, resulting in a sweeter and more mild cheese.  The curds are then pressed into a round mold and brined before aging just a few weeks in our cave.
