Deer Creek 1 Year Select AA Grade is the perfect example of what an aged Wisconsin Cheddar is famous for – a full, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth flavor that makes you want to take another bite.

Deer Creek 3 Year Reserve AA Grade is a classic Extra Sharp Cheddar with a rich, bold flavor and an unexpected creamy finish.

Deer Creek 5 Year Private Reserve is an outstanding representation of what a Wisconsin 5 year aged Cheddar should taste like.

Deer Creek 7 Year Proprietor’s Grand Reserve is a true balance of taste, texture, and body that unfolds and becomes the one-of-a-kind extra mature Cheddar the proprietor is proud to call his own.

As the cheeses age, Deer Creek’s team of Wisconsin licensed cheese graders continually evaluate and inspect the Cheddars to be sure that the chosen vats meet our specific standards of flavor, texture, body, and finish indicative of award-winning, classic Wisconsin aged Cheddars.
