At Farm Life Creamery, we handcraft small batch artisan cheese using Grade A milk from our family's Holstein herd in Ethan, South Dakota. Our version of the well known Colby cheese is without dye (leaving it white), and cut into easy to enjoy 8oz blocks. It's a mild, creamy, made from our Grade A, high butterfat milk, easy melting, simply delicious choice.
Colby often gets compared to Cheddar, but Colby cheese is softer, has a more open texture, and a higher moisture content, making the flavor milder and creamier than Cheddar. Farm Life Creamery Colby is white, because we haven't added any dye to make it orange like you might be used to seeing. We have also cut ours into easy to enjoy 8oz blocks. Colby cheese was developed in the late 19th century by Joseph Steinwand, the son of a Wisconsin cheese maker. He named the cheese after the town in which the family had built their first dairy, and Colby, Wisconsin continues to celebrate Colby cheese today. We hope you enjoy our version of this well known cheese!
