    Go on, let it "mature" further and than sell it. Profits are waiting to happen. Cheers. :):D:)

    Those are approx the prices we pay in N Wisconsin when we travel there. The differences in taste/texture between the different aged cheddars is vast. I generally find myself buying approx 10 yr old.

    I have a trip to Chicago in early October, and have one day to kill. I'd love to drive through Wisconsin and try out some of those cheeses, depending on what's available. Anyone knowledgeable with some suggestions?

    Easiest way to accomplish this is the drive up I-94 to Kenosha, Mars Cheese Castle is just off 94 http://www.marscheese.com/ Find an employee that knows about cheese, they have a few folks that will run you through the gamut of fine Wisconsin Cheeses available.

    On a side note, I do have a tourist rag I picked up that listed all the meat, grains/veggie &/or dairy farms that one could visit & purchase goods directly from the farm. Amazing info, I haven't been able to find anything online to mirror this.

    Edited to add: The Satori family of cheeses are some of my favorites, in particular the
    MONTAMORÉ® which you will find at Mars. http://www.sartoricheese.com/home.html

    I've had Hook's 1, 3, 5, and 10 year old cheddar. I was surprised the 10 year old wasn't dried out and crumbly.
