Grass Root Dairies

 

PEPPERY & GARDEN HERB

GOUDA STYLE CHEESE

 These two cheeses were some of the first flavors we made, and they are still highly in demand.   

 

 

The Peppery cheese consists of ginger, onion & garlic and though some people may wonder if it is a hot cheese, it is not, as it is made with sweet red bell peppers. We have added whole peppercorns, giving this cheese a bit of a bite.  

Try this one on homemade roast beef sandwiches!

If you like herbs, the Garden Herb Gouda (parsley, celery, onion, garlic, dill & chives)

is for you.

CHEESE

TYPES OF

CHEESE

If you’re looking for some good old-fashioned plain Gouda, there are three choices.  All of them are creamy, well textured, and range from a mild Gouda flavor to the distinct, hearty taste of our award winning Aged.

MILD 

GOUDA

The mild Gouda is about two months old, 

and is perfect if you’re looking for a lighter tasting cheese.

MEDIUM

GOUDA

Our medium is four to six months old,

giving it a little bit stronger taste than the mild.

AGED

GOUDA

Alas, the aged Gouda.  Receiving first place at the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix in 2004, we can barely keep this one on the shelf!  Aged for at least one year or more, this cheese has an extremely creamy texture and rich flavor.

It melts in your mouth! 

Ask about our extra aged- a 2 year old cheese with a nice bite 

melts in your mouth and leaves a lasting satisfaction.

MEDITERRANEAN

GOUDA STYLE CHEESE

The flavors of the world come to you in this unique blend.

It consists of onion, red pepper,

parsley, pepper, thyme & oregano,

making it a great Mediterranean cheese.

CUMIN

GOUDA

Similar to the caraway seed, Cumin is known as “the Dutch spice” and has a unique flavor of its own.  We make sure there is always plenty of “Komijnenkaas” on hand for our regular customers.

JALAPENO

GOUDA STYLE CHEESE

 Wanna spice up your life a little bit?

Try melting this one on nachos!

 The plain Jalapeno is mildly spicy with just enough kick, making it very popular with our customers.  The jalapenos also give the cheese a creamy texture.

HABENERO

GOUDA STYLE CHEESE

If you really want to heat things up, try the Habanero.  The Habanero pepper is the hottest Jalapeno there is.  

Hot! Hot! Hot! 

SMOKED

GOUDA STYLE CHEESE

If you like that “smoky” taste, here’s your cheese.    

  Our smoked flavored Gouda remains a popular choice with its creamy texture. 

MAZUDA

 

This is the newest addition to our grass fed cheeses. 

It is both like Gouda and a Maasdammer. 

Our cheesemaker came up with this creation by accident.  When we aged this cheese it had the bite of the Maasdammer but the texture of Gouda. 

Our customers are enjoying and

calling this their favorite cheese. 

Only from Grass Root Dairies can you find this semi hard cheese.

BEAUFORT

Beaufort is made from our cow’s milk. It is a firm, drier cheese and ages for over 6 months until the flavours come out bold. It leaves a buttery taste in your mouth. 

It is a great cheese as an alternative to Parmesan.

ALL CHEESE'S MADE FROM COW'S MILK

MAASDAMMER

 

 Another addition to our long line of cheeses is the Maasdammer.  The recipe for this mild, nutty flavored cheese comes straight from the Netherlands. 

The Maasdammer also known as our Dutch Swiss style cheese and is great for melting or just eating on its own.  Our long time customers love this one! It is now available in both Mild and Medium and Aged.
