There is a history of Somerset Cheddar-makers producing Caerphilly, as it's quicker-maturing and provides a faster turnaround. The Trethowans have gone about this the opposite way around, adding a long-maturing cheese to their Caerphilly production. While a cheese store is currently being built on the farm, the early batches have been matured at Westcombe Dairy.

Our work with this cheese

The Trethowans moved production of their first cheese, Gorwydd Caerphilly, from their birth country of Wales to Somerset in 2014. The purpose-built dairy farm is approximately five miles from the village of Cheddar, so after the move they felt compelled to add a clothbound Cheddar to their production. The cheese is still being produced in very small batches, of 11 or 12 cheeses, but when the cheese store is complete on the farm production will increase to meet the growing demand for this exceptional new cheese.
