Amish Cheeses


Clay City, Indiana: Dr. Tilak Dhiman of Utah State University speaking at the American Grassfed Association's convention said that "American organic food sales have grown and yet, this is happening without any conclusive research that organic food is healthier for you. We have a far stronger and better researched story itin grassfed products"
Some of grassfed's benefits in comparison with the grain fed products are:
- 500% more CLA
- 400% more Vitamin A
- 300% more Vitamin E
- 75% more omega-3
- 78% more Beta-carotene

Cheese and butter offers the fastest way to dramatically increase the CLA content of the consumer's diet. He said a serving of 100% grassfed cheese contains 212 mgs of CLA. To make this health food story even better, he said recent research has discovered a new fatty acid called Trans-vaccinic Acid or TVA. Human digestion can convert about 20% of this TVA to CLA. This gives grassfed products an even further advantage because the TVA has been found to increase linearly with the increase in pasture consumption just like CLA. "The more we research grassfed products the bigger health advantages to grass feeing gets." he said. All of the Cow’s milk cheese offered below comes from genuine grass-fed cows.” And all of the cheese on this page, cow’s milk or goat’s milk, is marked by the unmistakeable natural touch of the hard-working Amish.


All Cheeses are cut fresh the same day the order is shipped!

Cheese is priced and sold by 1 lb pieces, unless it otherwise stated in the detailed description
(Example, wheel, pc, loaf or ball).

When you add a 1 to you cart box you will get one 1 lb piece.
If you add a 2 to your cart box, you will receive one 2 lb piece.(etc)

Perishable cheeses are shipped in 2 inch thick styrofoam cooler with ICE packs and DRY ICE.

How to store cheese?

Always wrap cheese in wax paper...if you are worried about your cheese drying out...
you may then store it in a ziploc bag, that is not fully sealed.
Replace the wax paper wrap if it feels damp.

Never store cheese in direct contact with any kind of plastic.

Never wrap too tightly.

Any kind of tight wrapping will promote the growth of bacteria.
Freezing cheese will change the texture, and will be crumbly after thawing.
You should use thawed cheese within 2 or 3 days.

Shelf life for cheese in the refrigerator?

Fresh, Young or Soft Cheese-5 to 7 days
Semi-soft to Medium Aged Cheese-2 to 2 1/2 weeks.
Dry or Hard Cheese-6 weeks.
