We’re celebrating the release of our aged Calvander!

Calvander is the most robust cheese that we produce and is a 3-time winner of the Best in Show ribbon at the NC State Fair.  Inspired by Asiago, Calvander is aged for 7+ months, and is simply bursting with flavor!  Its buttery and walnut characteristics are balanced by a piquant tang. We named this cheese after Calvander Crossroads, the site of the 19th century Calvin Andrews schoolhouse just minutes from the Creamery.  Shave this cheese over pasta al dente or grate finely to make pesto. Add to a béchamel for serving over chicken, or mix with our Hickory Grove to give macaroni and cheese a real kick. And Calvander makes the perfect flavor-forward cheese for your cheeseboard!

On October 4th we’ll release the 2017 Calvander to our restaurant and retail customers.

Our restaurant partners will be featuring Calvander on their menus throughout October. Please contact the restaurants for reservations and more information. Thanks to all our restaurant partners!
