Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese
Old World Aged Cheddar is made in the traditional English style and remains Fiscalini's most popular and highly awarded cheese. It is firm, yet crumbly with a robust and buttery taste. During the 14-month aging process the wheels are wrapped in a cheesecloth to protect the outermost layer while allowing the cheese to breathe and develop internally. It is straw colored and has a nutty, slightly smoky, and earthy finish. This hard cheese is made from raw cow’s milk and handcrafted into 60-pound wheels.
Fiscalini Farmstead started as a dairy farm over 100 years ago. Today the fourth generation owns and operates the business, and continues a way of life that respects, preserves and honors the animals, the land, and resources.
Our farm was established in 1914 by our great-grandfather who immigrated from Switzerland and settled in Modesto, California. The dairy Farmstead has expanded to include a cheesemaking facility on the premises. We are committed to making the best-tasting, handcrafted cheeses in the world. We believe in the art and skill required to make cheese by hand. By using only the milk from our cows we achieve superior taste and quality which has won us numerous awards over the years. It is our mission to share our story and taste experience with the world.
