Extra Sharp Australian Cheddar is aged for at least 18 months to give it a rich, robust flavor with notes of hay and browned butter. The texture of this cheese is just right: sliceable yet crumbly, with the pleasant crunch of scattered crystals. This satisfyingly tangy cheddar comes from Old Croc, which makes bold cheeses that reflect the pioneering spirit of Australia itself. Their cows range free on pasture and produce the rich, flavorful milk that is the starting point for all of Old Croc’s meticulously crafted cheeses. Master cheesemakers evaluate every batch and grade each cheese three times to ensure quality and flavor.
The Australian dairy farmers who started Old Croc Cheese can precisely trace the lineage of their own cows—and, indeed, of all the cows on their continent—to the nation’s founding in 1788. That year, 11 British ships arrived in New South Wales and established the country as a penal colony. This First Fleet brought seven cows and two bulls, all of which escaped into the bush. Six years later, settlers found a herd of 60 cows, started milking them and created the new colony’s vibrant dairy industry.
Old Croc Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese is made from pasteurized cow’s milk.
