Everyone has heard of Cheddar, if only because of the cheese. Although, having given the name to the process of "Cheddaring", the town has been unable to protect its naming rights of the product in the way that other famous cheese regions such as Wensleydale, Stilton and Camambert have. However, the proud tradition of making the best Cheddar Cheese is still strong in the town. Things have been done in pretty much the same way since the 12th century, and the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company is now a very famous and popular tourist visit, with samples of the product being taken home to all corners of the world.
With the best will in the world, you can't make the best cheese without the best milk, and you can't get the best milk reliably without a healthy herd. It is the great care of every aspect, including lameness in cattle that means we are often relied upon by famers around Cheddar to provide:Photo from Featured Project near Cheddar
