Cheese curd varieties include  White Cheddar Curds, Garlic Cheddar Curds, Cajun Cheddar Curds, Italian Cheddar Curds, Dill Cheddar Curds, Cheddar Ranch Curds and Sweet Basil Garlic Cheddar Curds. 

“All of our cheese is from our own cows,” Young said.  

Young’s celebrates its 59th year in business this year, but the family’s history in farming dates long before then. Young’s great-grandfather built Young’s red barn in 1869. His father and uncles started selling beans, milk and hay in 1958.
