This extra mature, clothbound cheddar is made the old-fashioned way. Farmhouse cheddar, made on the farm and in small batches, is hard to find and demand is greater than supply. Quicke’s ethos is quality over quantity. They manage their herd carefully, never pushing them above their breeding limits and ensuring they enjoy a long and happy life, even getting 60 days’ maternity leave prior to calving. The truckles are specially selected for their brothy, caramelly flavour and dense, fudgy texture after maturing for a minimum of 18 months. Each wheel is hand-made and reflects true craft and seasonality making each batch exciting to taste.
