Traditional Farmhouse Cheddar has been made by Keen’s at Moorhayes Farm since 1899 when the family first moved there, using a recipe passed down through the generations, with time- honored methods of cheese making and traditional ingredients. Stephen and George Keen run the family business, with the younger generation taking more of the responsibility, Nick running the dairy and arable side of the business and James being the cheese maker, and are proud to produce a unique cheddar, which has won an array of awards in the past.
Keen’s cheddar is made from raw milk produced by the Keen’s own cows, grazing the lush pastures on the edge of the Blackmore Vale. Great attention is given to the cows, their feed, and the milk they produce, as the milk used in the cheesemaking is not pasteurised. As the cheddar cheese matures all the sweet creamy flavors in the milk create a rich complex array of tastes which wake up the taste buds.
Freshly baked bread and Keen’s cheddar makes a delicious meal when accompanied with fine wine or a good beer.
