Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese
Smoked Cheddar is naturally smoked by using a blend of apple, cherry, and hickory wood chips. To create this savory cheese, Fiscalini places their Farmhouse Cheddar into our on-site smokehouse and let the smoke penetrate deeply into the cheese. This process adds a distinct caramel color and supple leathery texture to their hearty cheddar. This semi-hard cheese is made from pasteurized cow’s milk and hand cut into 10-pound, 5-pound, or retail sized pieces before smoking.
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.
