Smooth, rich and miles from mild, Buttery Clothbound Cheddar from Quicke’s is a grass fed wedge that celebrates the best of Devon’s lush pastures. Full of the character and depth that is often associated with more mature cheeses, this youthful and vibrant cheddar reflects the cheesemaker’s many years of care and respect for the land, a corner of England that the Quicke family has nurtured for 14 generations.
Guided by the ethos, ‘farm like you’re going to live forever’, Quicke’s has farmed in harmony with its ancient environment since the 16th century, more recently evolving practices in pursuit of great cheesemaking with the help of modern research and technology. An age-old respect for nature, combined with the introduction of advances such as the kiwi grazing system and specially bred hybrid cows, have led to outstanding milk for cheesemaking, capturing the best expression of the grass, soil and seasons.
Full of the rich creaminess and intensely buttery flavour that is found at the early stages of the maturing process, Buttery Clothbound Cheddar is ready to challenge any cheese lover who thinks top class cheddar must be mature. It may be the baby of the Quicke’s range, but this award-winning wedge owes much to centuries gone by and the spirit of slow at Home Farm that will ensure the land and the cheeses will be around for many years to come.
