The Cheddar Cheese Company
We are a small artisan cheddar cheese maker, the only producers of cheddar within the Village of Cheddar, Somerset - the birthplace of cheddar cheese! The company had been making traditional cheddar cheese here for many years, however, between 2000 and 2003 it suffered a decline and was very close to going out of business.
Few people hand-make cheddar these days and we are doing our utmost to preserve and protect this dying practise. In the years since John & Katherine took over the Company, they have researched, experimented, tweaked and twiddled with the recipe, and are proud to have a superb team of staff who produce, pack and sell excellent quality, award winning, traditional cheddar cheese today. The result of which is quite different from the ‘everyday’ cheddar cheese we are all used to. We can't compete on price with the large producers of block cheddar cheese, but we can compete on taste.
We believe there is a market for both types of cheddar; and encourage you to try ours to compare.
