We cannot recommend this cheese enough for any special occasion. Handmade on the farm by Jonny and his team using their own raw Montbeliarde cows milk, this creamy white bloomy-rind cheese boasts a smooth and silky texture with a golden curd, and is infused with warm earthy, farmyard, and mushroom flavors that linger long after the first bite.

What makes this cheese truly remarkable is that it is the only traditional raw milk Brie-de-Meaux style cheese produced in the UK, and is one of only a few in the world made by the farmer on the farm. With a recipe passed down by a French cheese maker, this cheese is truly something special.

Crafted in small batches very early in the morning to ensure that the raw milk is still warm and at the perfect temperature for cheesemaking, the cheese is made entirely by hand. The warm milk is combined with mould cultures and rennet before being ladled into large moulds using traditional pelle-a-brie ladles. The young cheeses are then hand salted and aged for up to 8 weeks in a cave-like environment, resulting in a cheese that is truly exceptional.
