ABOUT US. OUR STORY SO FAR...


THE ONLY CHEDDAR MADE IN CHEDDAR!

We’ve been making traditional cheddar cheese here in Cheddar, the birthplace of this world-famous cheese since 2003. Using only fresh local unpasteurised milk, we preserve the original character of our namesake. That is, we only make true, authentic Cheddar, in the heart of Somerset.

Our happy cows where they belong!
