The Herkimer Cheese tradition has its roots in the rich soil of New York’s Herkimer County, where conditions are ideal for dairy farming. By the 1850s, the area became a major center of cheese production because the milk produced there was so wholesome and plentiful. Soon Herkimer County cheddar was known the world over for its exceptional flavor and quality.
Original Herkimer County Cheese Co. was founded in 1949 by Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon Basloe. Since that time, we have earned a national reputation for our finely-crafted artisan cheeses, carrying the proud Herkimer County tradition forward into the 21st Century.
