Statesboro Blue Cheese

Statesboro's blue cheese and gorgonzola represents the art of cave-aging cheese. Our natural handmade and hand-slated cheese wheels are produced by hand from whole milk, not machine-made under standardized conditions. Limiting the aging to 75 days creates a blue cheese with a pleasant tangy, not too sharp flavor profile. Both cheeses are available in crumbles and as wedges for sprinkling on salad or melting over hamburgers.
