Westcombe CheddarRegular price $2.80
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!
Appleby's CheshireRegular price $25.50
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.
Sparkenhoe Red LeicesterRegular price $34.00
A smooth and toothsome cheese, Sparkenhoe Red Leicester was essentially brought back from the dead. Cheesemakers David & Jo Clarke set out to revive a cheese that had only been known as an industrially produced supermarket cheese for 50 years. The Clarkes worked off an old recipe in order to create Leicester as remembered by the previous generation. A smooth cheese with a bit of brown butter sweetness and just a hint of citrusy tartness, Neal's Yard also makes sure to select the wheels with the nuttiest and longest-lasting flavor.
Stichelton Dairy SticheltonRegular price $40.00
A one of a kind, raw milk variation on a English Stilton style Blue. Stichelton is created through a long make process, involving hand ladeling of the curds to ensure a smooth, creamy texture. The flavor is bright and buttermilky up front with a finish that ranges from toasty to peppery. Great with any dark honey and Effie’s Cocoa Cakes.
