Cheddar GorgeWells

Cheddar Cheese has been produced in the Cheddar area for many centuries.
 
The rich grazing areas in the Somerset Levels produce quality milk and give a distinct flavour to the resultant cheese. Authentic Cheddar Cheese is made by hand from unpasteurised local milk and matured in cloth for at least a year. This is important to ensure the gradual change in texture and the unique Cheddar flavour.
 
Tourists can visit the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company, witness the art of cheese making and afterwards sample their tasty cheeses.
 
There is a shop where cheeses, local pickles etc are available for purchase.
