Creating a Better Cheddar with Flory’s Truckle

The Flory Family understands the tradition of cheese.

What other food can you think of that is considered both a staple and decadent delicacy? This delightful sample is a traditional farmhouse cheddar called Flory’s Truckle, available at The Better Cheddar ($29.99 per pound).

Made by the Flory family of Jamesport, Missouri, its sharp and salty flavor is tempered by an underlying sweetness. The artistry of it comes from the Flory family’s Amish heritage and their unflagging patience as they age it for a year.

Whether you serve it as an everyday snack or an indulgent dessert paired with fresh figs and dates, you’ll partake in one of our very own local customs—the tradition of good taste.
