CAPTAIN OGDEN CHEESE - 1 lb.
Captain Ogden (sold by the pound) is made 4-5 lb. wheels. Captain Ogden is a sweet-smelling ivory colored version of our signature Toma. To allow a longer aging time we use part skim milk in production. Aged for 10 months or longer, it is drier, has small holes, and has a stronger, more pungent flavor than its milder cousin, Old Grey Mare. We are excited to add this cheese to our offerings for those looking for a bolder flavored cheese. If a full wheel is desired, please order 4 pounds.
Pairs with: Bold, powerful Reds, dark strong beers, grappa, and manly alcohols!
Captain Ogden was one of the first settlers and considered the first businessman in what is now King Ferry. Owner of the first hotel, generations of “Captain” Ogdens were active farmers and businessmen in Cayuga County. We liked the association of a serious name with our strongest, longest aged cheese.
Captain Ogden is a longer aged cheese that pairs well with strong flavors. It has a natural rind that is redolent of the cave. Like a fine wine, it get better with age! Sold by the pound, Captain Ogden wedges are vacuum wrapped for transit. We recommend wrapping in cheese paper at receipt for continued maximum quality. Whole wheels can be purchased.
