About Smith's Country Cheese
Searching for New England traditions? Look no further than a picturesque spot in the hills of Winchendon, Massachusetts. Here at Smith’s, old fashioned family traditions and hard work are combined to produce our Farmstead Cheeses. Our Gouda rivals any made in the Netherlands. It has the same mild taste, creamy texture and small, bubbly eyes. An excellent dessert cheese, it is also great for cooking and melts beautifully. Our Aged Gouda won a gold medal at the 3rd Annual Big E Gold Medal Cheese Competition in September 2010, and our Plain Gouda won a bronze medal at the same competition! In 2012 our Gouda with Salsa, Gouda with Chipotle, Smoked Cheddar and Fiesta Gouda Spread won gold medals at the Los Angeles International Dairy Competition, and our Aged Gouda and Smoked Gouda won silver medals. At the 2012 Big E Gold Medal Competition our Gouda with Chipotle won a gold medal and Naturally Smoked Cheddar won a bronze. At the most recent Los Angeles International Dairy Competition, held on August 9, 2014, we took home 2 gold medals – for our new Gouda with Fenugreek and our new Leyden with Cumin. Order them online, and see if you agree with the judges! Our cheeses and spreads are made from the freshest milk possible, just minutes after the last cow in our dairy herd is milked. The result is true farmstead cheese! Smith’s Country Cheese produces, not only the original farmstead Gouda in a variety of flavors, but also cheddar in medium, sharp, and extra sharp … and now our newest addition, Havarti. Anyone who recognizes the appeal of farm fresh milk will enjoy the rich and creamy flavor of our Gouda, Cheddar and Havarti cheeses. Unlike factory produced cheese, our Gouda, Cheddar and Havarti share much of the same characteristic quality, distinction and appeal as other hand-crafted culinary products or beverages.
