Appleby's CheshireRegular price $19.00
Once the most well-known and widely-available British cheese, true Cheshire is now one of the rarest of birds. In fact, there remains only one surviving farmhouse Cheshire producer in the UK - the Appleby family on Hawkstone Farm. The farm is currently owned and operated by Sarah Appleby, who - together with cheesemaker Garry Gray - oversees cheese production, and her husband Paul, who takes care of the cattle and ensures their milk is of the highest quality. Their herd of cows graze on Shropshire's mineral-rich grasses, resulting in a flinty but still super rich paste.
Westcombe CheddarRegular price $22.50
One of just four traditional Somerset cheddars in the Slow Food Ark of Taste, Westcombe Cheddar is balanced and complex. The farm practices thoughtful herd management geared toward producing the best cheese milk possible, while cheesemakers strive to recreate cheddars as they were over a 100 years ago. This slower make process produces a gentler texture in the paste, and a mild yet juicy acidity. Fruity and savory flavors up front, chased by a pleasing saltiness. A monger favorite!
Trethtowan Brothers Gorwydd CaerphillyRegular price $10.00
Cheesemaking brothers Maugan & Todd Trethowan are dedicated to reviving this classic Welsh style using milk from their own herd of Holstein and Jersey cows. Aged longer than most other Caerphilly on the market, these wheels have a characteristic two-tone paste just under the velvety gray rind. The creamline, mushroom-y and silky, gives way to a crumbly center with notes of lemon yogurt and fresh-cut grass.
