Montgomery’s Cheddar has been made at Manor Farm in North Cadbury for three generations, since the Montgomery family moved down from Scotland in the early twentieth century. When Jamie Montgomery took over from his mother in the mid-nineties, the market for clothbound cheddars was dominated by cheese with a bright, acid, sharp flavour set in a soft creamy paste, which was well suited to supermarket cutting lines. Determined to make something different from these rather uniform cheeses, he set out to make a cheese with a drier texture and more complexity. 


While the texture of Montgomery’s Cheddar is consistently drier than other clothbound cheddars, the flavour of the cheese can vary tremendously. One of the principal reasons for this is that the bulk starter culture is changed every day over the course of a week, with the consequence that each day has its own character, ranging from meaty and savoury to sweet and fruity.
