Taste Nature’s Course
Welcome to the Traditional Cheese Dairy, where
we believe that goodness comes from the ground.
Set within the lush green fields of the Sussex
Weald, the Traditional Cheese Dairy uses fresh, raw milk from award-winning
local herds, to create fine-quality artisan cheeses, ranging from
tasty traditional cheddars to the critically acclaimed ewe’s
milk cheese Lord Of The Hundreds, not to mention our award-winning
Burwash Rose, which claimed the prestigious title of ‘best
British semi-soft cheese’ at the 2012 British Cheese Awards.
This dedicated, family-run dairy has spent the
past decades painstakingly refining and adapting centuries-old cheese-making
techniques to perfect a selection of cheeses that offer both exceptional
flavours and broad appeal.
IIndividually our cheeses offer unique and delicious
marriages of tastes and texture - together they represent the sophistication
that can be achieved by simply allowing fresh, unadulterated ingredients
to undergo natural processes, albeit under meticulous conditions
- and a watchful, experienced eye.
Additionally, the diary’s entire cheese
range is made using animal-free rennet approved by the Vegetarian
Society, thereby ensuring that all lovers of fine foods can enjoy
our carefully crafted produce.
At the Traditional Cheese Dairy we base the production
of all our quality cheeses on the age-old understanding that goodness
comes from the ground up - and that the cheese-making process begins
long before the milk reaches the dairy.
That’s why we only source fresh raw milk
from like-minded local farmers, who not only care about the welfare
and contentment of their animals, but also allow their herds to
roam wide, rich meadow pastures, sweetening their milk as they graze
upon tender, naturally available meadow herbage.
Milk gained from cows, sheep and goats tended
in this way is crucial for providing our cheeses their unique notes
of flavour - flavours bold enough to define each one, yet subtle
enough to vary with the seasonally changing diets of each herd.
This special blend of nature and nurture, passion
and craft, has created demand for our cheeses from professional
chefs and restaurants around the country, and convinced expert judges
at the annual British Cheese Awards to confer us with ‘Gold’
and ‘Best of Category’. However, due to our determination
to endorse and promote natural, caring and non-intensive farming
practices, we were equally thrilled to be awarded a Good Dairy Commendation
by the globally respected farm animal welfare organisation Compassion
in World Farming.
We’re convinced that it’s the combination
of all these factors that keeps our growing customer-base of honest
food-lovers coming back for more.
