Godminster’s 1.5kg Traditional Westcountry Farmhouse Cheddar, specially crafted to celebrate our 21st birthday
In youth we learn, in age we understand. When we created our first waxed cheddars to celebrate our organic farm, we never anticipated the amazing places Godminster would take us. Twenty-one years later and we’re only just beginning to understand the power of organic farming and the potential it has to make the world a better, kinder place. This limited edition unwaxed Traditional Westcountry Farmhouse Cheddar is made only using Godminster’s own organic milk to celebrate our journey over the past 21 years.
To create these special traditional cheddars we turned to expert Somerset cheesemakers, the Keen family, based just a few miles down the road from our farm. The Keens have been farming their patch of Somerset countryside for generations and produce beautifully nuanced traditional cheddars. They are master craftsmen, lovely neighbours, and the only cheesemakers we trusted to create our 21st-anniversary truckles.
This cheddar is proudly different from the rest of the Godminster range. It’s unpasteurised and handmade by the Keens, combining their traditional recipe with our organic Somerset milk to create only 500 of these very special cheeses. Rather than our usual waxed coating, this cheese has been wrapped in the traditional way with a larded cloth to allow it to breathe as it matures. Simply peel the cloth away as you enjoy your truckle, remembering to seal it tightly up again to keep it fresh in your fridge.
Flavour: A Deliciously Different Experience
A pleasantly natural, unadulterated and authentic traditional farmhouse cheddar. Dry and moreish yet full of clean, grassy flavours that evoke the rolling green pastures of Bruton, Somerset. Crumbly and moreish – perfect for a juicy farmhouse chutney or a spicy chilli jam.
Texture: Crumbly and Flaky in all the Right Ways
Unlike the Godminster waxed range, this cheddar is crumbly and flaky with a much firmer and drier consistency than our smooth and buttery waxed truckles. Remember to reseal your traditional cheddar tightly to keep it from drying out!
How to Enjoy your Traditional Cheddar
Carefully use a serrated knife to cut away at the seams, then unfurl the cloth binding to reveal the golden cheddar beneath. The drama is best performed with an audience gathered around your cheeseboard for the full theatrical experience!
- This cheddar comes packaged in an attractive gift box made from recycled cardboard that is also recyclable.
- We can deliver it to mainland UK addresses and delivery in 3-5 working days is at no additional cost.
- Unlike the rest of the Godminster range this cheese is unpasteurised and NOT suitable for vegetarians
