The mission of The Artisan Cheese Exchange is to provide consumers with the best tasting, highest quality cheese available. This is seen through their two award-winning brands, Deer Creek and Apollo’s Gift. Deer Creek cheeses are known for their exceptional flavor profile and unique attributes. Deer Creek offers hand selected aged Cheddars as well as unique handmade artisan cheeses. Each vat of aged specialty Cheddar is personally chosen by founder and licensed Wisconsin cheese grader Christopher Gentine for its superior flavor, texture and aroma. In addition to the highly decorated aged Cheddars, Deer Creek also offers unique, handmade artisan Cheddars like The Fawn, and The Stag. Their newest cheese, The Robin, recaptures the true essence of original Colby, with its firm, open body and fresh, buttery taste. Awarded more than 20 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons in the past 4 years, Deer Creek is truly an exceptional line of cheeses.
