A proud history.
The Herkimer Cheese tradition has its roots in the rich soil of New York's Herkimer County, where conditions are ideal for dairy farming. By the 1850s, the area became a major center of cheese production because the milk produced there was so wholesome and plentiful. Soon Herkimer County cheddar was known the world over for its exceptional flavor and quality.
Herkimer Cheese – originally Herkimer County Cheese Company – was founded in 1949 by Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon Basloe. Since that time, the Basloes and their three sons have earned a national reputation for their finely-crafted artisan cheeses, carrying the proud Herkimer County tradition forward into the 21st Century.
