Ford Farm Cave Aged Cheddar

from £3.50

Ford Farm's cave-aged cheddar is made in their dairy in Dorset, but matured in the unique environment of Somerset's Wookey Hole cave. Maturing cheese in caves is nothing new in France - Roquefort has been matured in the caves of Combalou mountain for centuries - but Ford Farm's Mike Pullin was the first to do it here.

Mike is convinced that the cave environment has given his cheese a different dimension. The natural moulds grow faster in the high humidity and this has a mellowing effect. The precise contribution of Wookey Hole may be hard to pin down, but this is certainly a welcome addition to the Westcountry cheddar scene.
