Like an oiled Barbour coat or an Aston Martin, the Brits turn out some damn good stuff that stands the test of time. None the least of which are their Clothbound Cheddars. We knew there was no reason to reinvent the wheel here. So we just decided to stick with tradition and make our own. In homage to the best of those classy British Cheddar makers, we take raw Jersey & Guernsey cow milk (sometime we add some sheep) and follow the old day long chedarring process that ends in cloth-lined 25 lb. drums. We press it, firm up the cloth, and attach our copper tag to it to make sure we know when to test it. Then we let the Cave Gods work their magic for about a year. We look for a medium to bold sharpness, a rustic creaminess, and an overall sense of history that we’ve learned to look for over the years. When you’re adhering to a centuries-old tradition, you tend to aim high!
Shipping- any combination of cut cheese over $120 ships free!
Our artisan cheeses are released weekly from our cave thus not always readily available. We do reserve the right to substitute a similar cheese of equal or more value.
We like to ship on Mondays & Tuesdays for the sake of the cheese. Please ask if you need a certain date or accommodations, we are very reasonable.
OUR BASKET PHILOSOPHY: WE are not a fulfillment center for a slick online gift site. We are a dairy farm. We 'shop' for your items in our store and put REAL stuff in our gift boxes. We do not stuff them with 'fluff' like big bags of $2 dry pasta, low grade flavored cheeses, plastic vac pac items or unknown weight of cheese. So whether you are sending this as a gift or to yourself or to someone else, you will be getting a bunch of high-end gourmet products right off the shelves of our farm store.
