Balderson Cheddars and
International Honours

Producing a great cheese is reward enough. But it’s nice to be
recognized for the quality of your work. And for Balderson,
that recognition has come from around the world.

Here’s a sampling of the honours our cheese has earned:


We are so Proud of our 5-Year Aged Cheddar
