Based on Prince Edward Island, Canada, COWS Creamery began making Cheddar Cheese in 2006. Our first Cheddar was Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar which is an English Style Clothbound Cheddar that is aged for 18 months in our aging cave.
COWS Creamery Extra Old Cheddar began shortly thereafter, and COWS Creamery Appletree Smoked Cheddar was added to the lineup in 2011.
In 2018, we expanded our COWS Creamery Cheddar line adding a 1 Year Old, 2 Year Old, and 3 Year Old Cheddars. Our cheddars have been awarded many awards over-the-years.
In 2014, our COWS Creamery Extra Old was named World’s Best Cheddar and our COWS Creamery Appletree Smoked was named World’s Best Smoked Cheddar at the World Championship Cheese Contest.
In 2015, our Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar was named World’s Best Vintage Cheddar at the World Cheese Awards.
We began making COWS Creamery Sea Salted Butter in 2010, Unsalted Butter in 2011, and added Cultured Butter in 2016. Our COWS Creamery Butter has 84% butter fat (4% higher than regular butters) which gives it a richer, creamier taste.
COWS Creamery is a division of COWS Inc. that has made delicious, super premium ice cream on Prince Edward Island since 1983. Despite the growth that COWS has experienced, the same old-fashioned ingredients are still used today when making the 32+ flavors that are produced by COWS Inc. in Charlottetown.
Each COWS ice cream is served in a handmade waffle cone, created one at a time, right at the ice cream counter.An integral part of our dairy products is Prince Edward Island milk. It is the only milk we use when producing our ice cream, cheese, and butter. We know it helps add flavour and quality to our delicious products.
