The Fawn

The Fawn’s Aging Process:  The Fawn is a traditional bandage wrapped and waxed daisy wheel cheddar aged in a poplar wood box. It is aged for a minimum of 90 days. This cheese has a unique culture set that develops different flavor characteristics as the cheese ages. For The Fawn, we look for specific flavor nuances, like a clear buttery note and a strong caramel note. If the cheese has not developed those flavor characteristics by the time we’re looking to release it, we will let it continue to age in order to allow it to develop the signature flavors we look for in The Fawn’s sister cheeses, The Stag and The Imperial Buck.
