Pitchfork Organic Cheddar
£6.40 – £16.00
Pitchfork cheddar has a dense, creamy texture and is distinguished by its full-bodied flavour with a succulent and lactic bite.
Made at Trethowan Brothers, makers of award-winning, organic, unpasteurised cheese in North Somerset. Over twenty-five years of experience has gone into their methods, keeping heritage cheese making alive and adhering to the principles of the Slow Food movement.
Pitchfork Cheddar is made only 5 miles away from Cheddar itself, using traditional methods before being cloth-bound with lard. The name ‘Pitchfork’ originates from the way in which cheddar was historically made, when old farming tools were used to toss the curd whilst mixing in the sale. We still use similar methods today with contemporary additions to this heritage process. Pitchfork is matured with us for an exceptional 10 -12 months, to develop its signature flavour.
Their approach and commitment to producing a raw milk, organic, slow matured Cheddar Cheese is winning global awards and gaining a global reputation and has won the following awards at the 2019 world cheese awards:
Best British Cheese
Best extra mature cheddar
Best mature traditional cheddar
