Get ready for more inspired pizza-making, spontaneous entertaining and creative meals on busy days. Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese has just introduced one of its most acclaimed cheeses in convenient, one-pound Sliced Fresh Mozzarella Logs. With a 60-day shelf life, you can keep Crave Brothers Sliced Fresh Mozzarella Logs on hand in the refrigerator for appetizers, burger topping and pizzas. The slices of award-winning artisan cheese boast a fresh, milky flavor and are uniform in diameter. Sliced Fresh Mozzarella Logs make it easy to unleash your creativity with layered salads, open-faced sandwiches, eggplant Parmesan appetizers, and mini pita pizzas.
With approximately 16 slices per pound of Crave Brothers Sliced Fresh Mozzarella Log, you’ll have enough Fresh Mozzarella Slices to make a 12-inch Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Pizza Margherita with sliced plum tomatoes and fresh basil—and still have some available for other recipe applications. That means you can make Crave Burgers with Fresh Mozzarella Slices and marinara sauce, or a Fresh Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic Drizzle and Walnuts, featuring dried cranberries, basil and sliced fresh tomatoes. Once you’ve opened the package, you can keep Fresh Mozzarella Slices for up to five days in the refrigerator. Simply wrap any remaining cheese in plastic wrap and then place it in an airtight container before refrigerating.
Crave Brothers Sliced Fresh Mozzarella Logs are made with milk from the Crave family’s own dairy herd and are handcrafted in their farmstead cheese factory using 100% green power. In addition to Fresh Mozzarella Sliced One-Pound Logs, Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella is available in several convenient forms that make it easy to prepare your favorite recipes. Choose from medallions, one-pound logs, one-pound balls, eight-ounce balls, small Fresh Mozzarella balls in four sizes ranging from pearl size to egg size, and Marinated Fresh Mozzarella.
Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella has won more than 40 awards, including four in 2018. The year’s awards for Marinated Fresh Mozzarella included First Place at the World Cheese Championships and First Place at the Wisconsin State Fair.

The Crave family farms 2,500 acres of productive land in south-central Wisconsin, growing soybeans, corn and alfalfa to use as nutritious feed for their Holstein cows. From the biodigester to water recovery and recycling, sustainability is top-of-mind on the farm. The Crave Brothers Farm LLC and Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese LLC use 100% green power and are carbon-negative businesses. Their anaerobic biodigester produces more electricity than they need, enough to power the dairy farm, the farmstead cheese-making plant, and over 300 homes in their community.
Every pound of cheese made by George Crave, a licensed cheese maker, is made with milk from the family’s herd. Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese produces Fresh Mozzarella, Mascarpone, Part-skim Mozzarella, Oaxaca, Farmer’s Rope String Cheese, and Fresh Cheddar Cheese Curds in white, yellow and jalapeño varieties.
