Keens Cheddar is one of the top 10 British kinds of cheese made by the Keen family at Moorhayes Farm, Wincanton in Somerset, since 1898. It is made from unpasteurized cow's milk from their own herd of grass-fed cows living on the farm.
The cheddar uses a traditional recipe passed down by preceding generations. It is pressed and bathed for three days and matured for 16 to 18 months. The resulting cheese is dense with a rich and creamy texture. It has savoury, mustardy, juicy and a sharp sting at the end. Another version called 'extra mature unpasteurised cheddar' is matured for at least an extra six months.
Accompany freshly baked bread, fine wine or a good beer alongside some sweet, creamy Keens Cheddar.
