Quicke’s goat’s cheese grabs the gongs, as the awards stack up at Home Farm

Goats cheese clothbound british awards artisan

Distinguished Devon-based cheesemaker, Quicke’s has scooped yet more silverware for the Home Farm trophy cabinet, including a hat trick of Golds at the Artisan Cheese Awards, five awards at the British Cheese Awards and two awards from Taste of the West. Adding to its impressive run of recent awards, the delightfully different Goat’s Milk Clothbound Cheese amassed accolades across the board, earning plaudits at all three.

Among the other trophied truckles were Oak Smoked Clothbound Cheddar, garnering Gold at the Artisan Cheese Awards, and Double Devonshire Clothbound Cheese, which collected Silver at the British Cheese Awards. As the results rolled in, wins went to wedges across the entire Quicke’s range, from a Taste of the West Gold for Extra Mature Clothbound Cheddar to a British Cheese Awards Bronze for Lady Prue, Home Farm’s first ever mixed-milk cheese launched earlier this year.

Mary Quicke MBE commented:

“From our hybrid cows to the microflora in our maturing rooms, everything at Home Farm is driven by the desire to make outstanding cheese, crafting greatness from our little patch of Devon. These awards mean a lot to us all and are a great way to benchmark the work that we do, so it fills me with pride to see truckles from every corner of the cheese store winning prizes. Artistry has always run through our veins at Quicke’s, pushing us to experiment with and refine our craft, making it especially pleasing to see Lady Prue, our recently launched mixed-milk cheese, receive a Bronze medal in its first year at the British Cheese Awards. It takes many months, or more often years, of experimentation, hard work and reflection to craft a new cheese of this calibre and we really feel that all this love and care has paid off.”
