Crowley's cheese making history began in Healdville, Vermont, in 1824. In 1882, Winfield Crowley built a small, 30 feet by 30 feet, three-story building. Crowley Cheese continues to be made in this factory. The entire production process is completely "human" powered. Only a few hundred pounds of cheese are made each day and the process is exactly the same as when the factory was established. There is no automatic stirring equipment or other devices.

Although similar to the English-style cheddars made by other Vermont producers, Crowley Cheese is an "American Original." There are very few cheeses that originated in the United States. Most came with the various immigrant groups who settled our country. Similar to a cheddar and grouped in the cheddar family of cheeses, Crowley Cheese is officially designated by the FDA as a "Colby" even though it is not truly similar to industrial Colby and despite the fact that Crowley Cheese was made for decades before Colby cheese, named after Colby, Wisconsin, existed. Crowley Cheese is the only remaining original Vermont cheese.

Because of steps that are taken that are not done in making an English style cheddar, Crowley Cheese is neither as dry nor nearly as acidic as cheddar. It does not take as long to develop a strong robust flavor. Some cheddars take as much as several years to pass beyond bland or pasty. When compared with traditional cheddar, Crowley Cheese has a smoother, some say "creamier" taste. The taste difference is noticeable.

Today, after three generations of Crowley's and two generations of Smith's, Crowley Cheese continues to make one of the finest cheeses in America.

  • The oldest continuously operated cheese producer in the United States.
  • Unpasteurized cow's milk (certified BST & BGH free).
  • Photo depicts 23 lb. wheel.
  • We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound.
  • Voted Best Colby in the Nation by the American Cheese Society.

Crowley's Cheddar
My hubby is originally from CT so he has eaten really good Vermont cheddars for much of his life. He kept telling me the differences in them but I couldn't find anything close so I took a chance and bought some from igourmet.com. He loved it, and I will buy a lot more now that I know how good it is. Great cheese and fast service. I just wish they were closer so we didn't have to wait.

Great with apples or pears
Not a biting sharp cheddar but a very pleasant taste - we served with pears and apple slices on a simple cracker -- just delicious. And personally I would call it a colby but under any name it's excellent.

An American Classic
Wonderful with a glass of Chianti or Rosso de Montalcino. Makes a heavenly Maccaroni & Cheese. Thin sliced alongside homemade apple pie (Vermont Apples of Course!) Or just on the cheese board with some common crackers in front of the TV.

The cheddar flavor of your dreams
I expect cheddar to be firm but tender and look for a very mouth filling flavor. This cheese met all of my expectations. Rich and flavor filled, properly sharp but not overwhelming. A must have!

This is what I call cheese!
This is what I look for in a good Cheddar, They may call it Colby, but the great flavor is a slighty sharp taste. I can't wait to order more!!!
