Nestled amongst the rolling hills and lush pastures of central Wisconsin, Carr Valley cheese remains one of Wisconsin's traditional cheese plants, famous for its cheddar varieties made the old-fashioned way. Owned and operated by the Cook family, Carr Valley will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year.
We had the good fortune of being placed next to the folks from Carr Valley at the annual wine festival in Kohler, WI. They were featuring their Cocoa Cardona, which we loved immediately. Made from 100% goat's milk, this cheese is aged and rubbed with cocoa, which enhances its flavor beautifully. This cheese is firm enough to slice, but also melts well. Cocoa Cardona won 1st Best of Class in the U.S. Cheese Contest in 2003. Thanks to this gem, we have since pursued some of their other wonderful cheeses.
