Hard Cheeses

Hard cheeses are cheeses that are firm in texture. They tend to break apart and crumble when cut, and are often used for grating.

A cheese’s firmness is mainly a result of two factors: a cheese’s age and its moisture content. Aged cheeses with a low moisture content tend to be hard, such as Parmesan, Aged Cheddar, and Pecorino Romano.

At the Adams Cheese Shop, we have a variety of domestic and imported hard cheeses for sale. Browse through our complete list below:
