Cheese of the Month | March

When the cheesemakers at Deer Creek were crafting the recipe for Vat 17, they tested numerous flavors and aging combinations. Their research resulted in a satisfying, dense and creamy aged cheddar. Out of the 22 batches of aged cheddar they tested, "Vat 17" was their favorite. Vat 17 World Cheddar has won numerous awards and is especially popular for its bold, complex and nutty flavors. 

The Vat 17 World Cheddar is on sale through March! Find it in the cheese case for $15.99/lb (regularly $19.99/lb).


Deer Creek recommends pairing their World Cheddar with light or nutty beers, hard cider, or dessert wines. Build a cheese tray featuring Vat 17 alongside tangy dried fruit, pistachios and crusty bread. 

Deer Creek is part of the Artisan Cheese Exchange based in Sheboygan, WI.
