At every stage of its creation this cheese strives for greatness, and it all begins with the land. The red Devon soil, the gentle rain and warmth of sunlight in turn create lush pasture to feed the farms herd of pasture fed cows.
This cheese is a true expression of the Devon terroir.
Made with pasteurised cow's milk (MILK) and animal rennet.
It is necessary to apply a common sense approach to cheese care and respond to the cheese you have in front of you, as opposed to following rigid guidelines.
The best option is to keep the cheese wrapped in its waxed paper within a box in the fridge. The container will help to prevent the cheese from drying out and prevent the cheese from absorbing flavours.

About the producer
We've got a lot to thank Anne Boleyn for. It was because of her that Henry VIII fell out with the Catholic church, dissolved the monasteries and reallocated their land. Some of that land, particularly a beautiful stretch near Newton St Cyres in Devon was given to the Quicke family who established themselves in this green and very pleasant corner of Devon.
The Quicke fell in love with the place and set to work, inspired by the family motto 'Petit ardua virtus' - 'strength seeks challenges'. Generation after generation, they toiled and tilled and tended, nurturing the ancient fields and woodlands, doing all they could to build a better farm, serve the village and create a beautiful place to live.
Using traditional recipes, time-honoured techniques and heritage starters passed down through the generations, the Quicke family have been making world class clothbound cheeses for five generations and continue to create outstanding cheddar to this day.
Made by hand in the old-fashioned way, slowly matured for a deeply satisfying flavour, the cheese celebrates the deep connection that has grown between the Quicke family and the land they have nurtured for almost 500 years.
