What is stardew valley cheese?

First things first, the cheese in Stardew Valley is described as an artisan good that you can make from the cheese press in the game. If you will try to make you own cheese, then it will take you 3.3 hours until it’s ready!

You can use both milk and large milk to make the Stardew Valley cheese, but keep in mind that the large milk will make gold quality cheese! Isn’t that what we all want in the game?

If you would like to purchase the Stardew Valley cheese and save some time, then you can go to the Desert Trader. That’s where you can buy cheese for one emerald.

P.S this trade can only be done on Fridays.

Now, let’s take a look at the different selling prices you can get from this item (the price can depend on your profession and on the quality of the item itself).
