To make great cheddar you need the very best milk. For cows to make milk they need grass.
And to make grass you need rain, lots of it. That’s why Cornwall with
its gentle, year-round rainfall and warm summer sun is such perfect dairy
country. Just think of all those clotted cream teas.
Our Davidstow creamery has been making cheddar for sixty years.
Built on what was once a wartime aerodrome, it sits in rich
dairy country. Over 400 local farmers supply us with the milk we need to give
our award-winning cheddar its distinctive creamy character. Or maybe it's the
influence of the ancient St David's Well nearby.
It takes time to make proper cheddar. That means starting with the freshest possible
milk and leaving the final result to mature for over a year until ready to eat -
or a little longer for that extra bite.
