Cheddar cheese is a firm, cows-milk cheese named after the town in England where it originated. During processing, the cheese curd is cut into small pieces, or "cheddared." Organic Valley Cheddar cheese is white, because there are no colors added. All you taste is the good flavor that cheddar lovers expect. Organic Valley is a mission-driven cooperative owned by organic family farmers since 1988. They are committed to organic agriculture and building a future for sustainable family farming in America. All farmers in the cooperative practice environmental awareness and cooperative principles in all aspects of production, handling, and operations.
