It was over twenty years ago that cheese was first made in the old dairy at Willet Farm.
The first cheese made was a sheeps’ milk cheese and this was shortly followed by the product after which the company is named and which is the flagship of our business; Exmoor Blue. A blue cheese made from Jersey cows’ milk, it was the forerunner of the range of cheeses which we now produce. Exmoor Blue has been award P.G.I. status (Protected Geographical Indication) which ensures that our cheese is made to specified standards using local milk from within the designated area.
The product range now extends to include other cheeses made from Jersey milk (Somerset Blue and Partridge’s Blue) plus goat, sheep and Buffalo milk cheeses.
All our products are hand made to traditional recipes and methods. We use only the milk from local herds to which is added starter cultures, vegetarian rennet, penicillin roqueforti (which gives the characteristic blue tang as the cheese is matured) and salt.
We are proud to be a family business whose aim is to produce artisan cheeses of the finest quality for lovers of fine food to enjoy.
