Made using traditional methods and a traditional recipe, Pitchfork Cheddar is handmade with unpasteurized cow's milk by the Trethowan Brothers in Somerset, England. Each cheddar is carefully cloth-bound and matures over 12 to 14 months. The name 'Pitchfork' originates from the actual pitchforks employed to blend salt into the curds during the cheese-making process.
Notably, this cheese is produced with Jersey cow’s milk, typically used for softer cheeses, resulting in its moist, smooth, and creamy texture. On the palate, a tangy flavour profile develops, complemented by a subtle nuttiness.
