A buttery, gouda-style raw cow's milk cheese, perfect for melting by Meadow Creek Dairy in Virginia — one 7-8 oz piece


Galax Cheese
by Meadow Creek Dairy
one 8-9 oz package

Aged two months or more in the cellars, Galax is a mellow cheese whose smooth, buttery texture brings out the natural sweetness of the raw cow's milk. Tangy lemon flavor gives way to a touch of walnut nuttiness on the finish. The texture is pleasantly soft and springy, melting on the tongue.

We love using Galax in a grilled heritage ham and cheese, or serving it warm on a cheese plate with heritage prosciutto and salami.

Meadow Creek Dairy is a family farm in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia with high rolling mountains and temperate climate much like the European Alpine cheesemaking region. They began as a dairy farm in the 1980's and started cheesemaking in 1998, mastering a few raw, complex, cows' milk cheeses. As a seasonal grass based dairy, they only make cheese when their cows are out on pasture - from mid-March until December.

Keeps refrigerated for 30 days.

Heritage Foods is expanding our cheese selections in partnership with the Anne Saxelby Legacy Fund (ASLF), whose mission is to provide monthlong paid apprenticeships for young adults to live on sustainable farms — to work, learn, and be inspired to create change in their communities. We have selected our favorite domestically produced cheeses from ASLF partner farms for pairing with Heritage meats!
