Keens Cheddar is one of the top 10 British cheeses made by Keen family at Moorhayes Farm, Wincanton in Somerset since 1898. It is made from unpasteurized milk from their own herd of grass fed cows living on the farm. The family makes only 130 cheeses per week.
The cheddar uses a traditional recipe passed down by preceding generations. It is pressed and bathed for three days and matured for a minimum of one year. The resulting cheese is creamy, smooth and firm textured with long, earthy, rich, nutty flavours and a sharp sting at the end.
Keens Cheddar is one of the three Cheddars under the Slow Food Presidia of Artisan Somerset Cheddar, the other two being Montgomery's and Westcombe. Accompany freshly baked bread, fine wine or a good beer alongside some sweet creamy Keens Cheddar.
