Uplands Cheese | Pleasant Ridge Reserve


Long Description

Uplands Cheese Company makes some of the most beautiful American cheeses to date. Based in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, their impressively small team goes through amazing feats of milking their cows seasonally and perfecting two cheeses, Pleasant Ridge Reserve and seasonal Rush Creek Reserve, only available on our site from late Fall through early Winter.

Today, you can order Pleasant Ridge, available to ship every Monday. Pleasant Ridge Reserve is modeled after the French Beaufort, but it is it's own form of delicious. Made solely with lush, fresh summer grasses the milk is sweet and grassy, making for a powerfully complex and nuanced cheese with an aroma of bread and light-bodied honey, tasting of buttery hazelnut and cremini mushrooms, and delicate protein crystals in the texture.

We'll include literature on storing, serving, and pairing the cheese.

The two different-sized wedges available (1.25 lbs and 2.5 lbs) fit in the Cheese Grotto Classico and the Cheese Grotto Fresco and will keep for two months if well-maintained.


• Your shipping charge is based on your zip code location.

• We ship every Monday. To be included in the following week’s shipment, please place order by the Thursday prior.

• Please visit our shipping policy page for additional questions.

The Cheese Grotto is fantastic - it keeps my blocks of cheese fresher for longer periods of time, unwrapped in all their glory.

CK, Cheese Grotto Classico Owner

It really does extend the life of cheese over time. Aside from the functionality, the Cheese Grotto looks great and is easy to maintain.

Allan, Cheese Grotto Fresco Owner

The Cheese Grotto is a must have for anyone who loves cheese. Looks stunning and keeps all of your cheeses in perfect condition.

Well balanced cheddar

I’ve been enjoying this with flax and poppy seed crackers. Not too sharp and has a subtle nutty flavor that the crackers being out.

Lisa, we love this cheddar so much haha! We're so happy you also enjoy it, it is wonderfully complex and nuanced without being too aggressive. And the flavor just lasts and lasts.

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
