BARBER’S 1833 CHEDDAR (6.5 - 7oz)

BARBER’S 1833 CHEDDAR (6.5 - 7oz)


The Barber family have been making cheddar since 1833, which makes them the oldest surviving cheddar-makers in the World!

Barber’s 1833 Farmhouse Cheddar is made on Maryland Farm in Ditcheat, Somerset, only 13 miles from the village of Cheddar itself and protected under the PDO certification.

The Barber family are the sole guardians of the last traditional pint starter culture. This pint starter culture comes from the local area in the south west of England, meaning you have a cheddar that is made in the home of cheddar with a culture that has been developed in the local area, it does not get more original than that! This attention to detail is the secret that drives the Barber family to make the best cheese; and is unrivalled by any other producer in the world.

As well as cheese makers the Barber family are also farmers, looking after 2000 cows over 2500 acres, producing milk for the dairy.
