Quickes Traditional Cheese – lovingly made by hand with our own milk
Quickes have been making cheese on their dairy farm in Devon since 1973, using milk from their own cows. Every cheese is handmade by one of nine skilled cheesemakers before being wrapped in muslin and carefully matured for up to 24 months. The cheeses are multi-award winning – with Gold’s and First’s already collected during 2013 and many achieved in 2012, including a Gold this year at The Royal Bath and West and Gold’s last year at the British Cheese Awards. Quickes are renowned for their Cheddar cheese and also make Traditional Red Leicester, Double Gloucester and a Hard-pressed Goats Cheese. Quickes will be providing their most famous cheese for the Tiptree World Bread Awards – Traditional Mature Cheddar. By slowly maturing a muslin-wrapped truckle, it is allowed to breathe – producing a beautiful rinded cheese with a unique and complex flavour.
