Rich in character, our collection of handmade artisan cheeses are known for their whimsical labels, their unique stories, and above all, their award winning flavor. The inspiration for the cast of characters came from Founder Chris Gentine’s beloved little boy storybook, The Golden Story Book of River Bend, written by Richard Scarry’s wife Patricia Scarry.
The award winning Deer Creek Specialty Cheddar collection is a family of the finest hand selected Wisconsin aged Cheddars in the marketplace. In fact, Deer Creek specialty Cheddars are some of the most decorated classic aged Cheddars in recent history, having won 12 top awards in the past 6 years.
Theses are the cheeses from our Founder’s childhood. The ones he grew up with. The ones he loved. At Deer Creek we believe that we are only one generation away from the extinction of some of the traditional flavor, body, and texture characteristics that classic, Wisconsin-produced cheeses have always been known for.
