Named after its inventor, Winfield Crowley and officially designated as a Colby cheese, Crowley is being made in the United States since 1824. Handmade from whole, unpasteurized cow's milk, the cheese still adheres to hand tools and traditional methods of cheesemaking.
Clothbound and hand waxed, Crowley wheels come in various flavors and shapes. From mild, medium sharp, sharp to extra sharp, the flavor of the cheese leaves behind strong, fully developed layers on the palate. Derivatives of award winning Crowley include cheeses flavored with garlic, fresh chive, manzanilla olives, garlic, and pimento, sage, hot pepper and smoked.
Each of these cheese varieties can be matured from a minimum of 2-5 months to 12+ months for a pronounced flavor.
