Redhead Creamery Lucky Linda Clothbound Cheddar
Redhead Creamery made it first batch of cheese in 2013 and by the end of 2014 they had built and opened up thier own cheese making facility right here on their family farm, Jer-Lindy Farms. The dream for this sustainable and eco-friendly creamery has been a dream of founder (and natural redhead) Alise Sjostrom’s since she was 16.

Aging in their cheese caves under their on-farm cheese shop right now are their delicious Lucky Linda wheels. They will age for a minimum of 6 months, resulting in a cheddar cheese that is smooth, savory, and unlike anything you’ve ever had. What makes Redhead Creamery's cheese so unique and tasty? Each 10-lb wheel is hand-wrapped in muslin cloth after it is pressed, ensuring uniformity in taste, texture, and consistency. As it ages, we allow the natural molds found in the air to grow on the surface of their cheese wheels, creating a unique look and flavor only found on their farm.
Lucky Linda Clothbound Cheddar takes its name from Alise’s mom, Linda, and the stroke of ‘luck’ that it took for Redhead Creamery to get up and running. Additionally, a small town just north of Redhead Creamery--Padua, MN--is an ultimate destination for one of Linda's favorite holidays, St. Patrick's Day.
