The addition brings two Wisconsin neighbors together, Patrick Cudahy and Barron County Cheese. Wisconsin and cheese are inseparable; Wisconsin continues its reign as the largest cheese producing state. In Barron, Wis. where the Barron County Cheese smokehouse is located, Patrick Cudahy’s new All Natural Apple-Wood Smoked Cheese is smoked the old fashioned way.

“Our new Sweet Apple-Wood Cold Smoked Cheese has taken the flavor to a new level, while carrying on the Patrick Cudahy tradition of creating quality and flavor that consumers know and love,” said Bud Matthews, Senior Vice President, Patrick Cudahy.

Sweet Apple-Wood Cold Smoked Cheese delivers the delicious and wholesome taste families have come to count on from Patrick Cudahy’s other products, like Sweet Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon and hams. There is simply no replicating the look, feel, and texture of naturally smoked cheese. The meticulous smoking process is evident in every block of the cheese, with subtle hints of light brown and outlines of the racks that hold the product on the smoking unit.
