Originating in the Netherlands, Gouda has an edible, brown rind and a creamy, yellow interior. Smoked over hickory chips, Smoked Gouda is a hard and crumbly cheese. All our cheeses use only the freshest, finest ingredients. Crafted by expert artisans, they are full of flavor. Enjoy them alone, sliced in sandwiches, shredded or grated in recipes, or cubed with fruit, wine, or crackers.
