Saxon Creamery is partnered with 5th generation Wisconsin dairy farm, Saxon Homestead Farm and their 500 Jersey/Holstein crossbred cows to produce high quailty award winning cheese.  

During late fall and early winter, the Saxon herd produces a unique milk, high in protein and cream. Head cheesemaker, Ed Steltenpohl, uses the milk to produce a Wisconsin take on a German cheese.

This cheese has rich, creamy texture with flavors of sweet milk and Parmesan notes. Sometimes you may even get a little crunch from the lactic acid crystals that form during the aging process. 

Enjoy Snowfields with crusty, hearty breads and soup. It's also great served with aged lager beers and dry wines. 

With this limited-availability milk, we handcraft Snowfields, aging it six months. The cheese wheels rotate through three aging rooms, from winter through late summer, to develop its unique flavor characteristics. 

To maintain quality, our cheese inventory is constantly refreshing. We cannot guarantee that a cheese is in stock at a quantity sufficient to fill on order.  Orders for out of stock or limited quantities will be notified, substitutions recommended and purchases partially or wholly refunded if necessary.  

1-2 day shipping is required at checkout.  Cheese is shipped on Monday - Wednesday in insulated packaging with cold packs.  Cheese should be refrigerated immediately after receipt.  

All our orders are sliced by hand. Slicing cheese is an inexact art.  Weights are approximate and will vary.
