Park House Cheddar
by Torpehnow Farmhouse Dairy | Located 21 miles from Basecamp North Lakes
Torpenhow makes Park House Organic Cheddar in the dairy on their farm using fresh organic milk from their Jersey Friesian cows before undergoing a six-month maturation in the barns next door.
A good cheddar is a staple for any cheese board and thi award-winning Park House Organic Cheddar won’t disappoint, with just the right degree of sharpness it is a wonderfully creamy, close-textured cheese with a mellow character and long-lasting mouthfeel.
This firm yet crumbly cheddar is a great choice for any classic cheese sandwich, gourmet grilled cheese sandwich or luxurious Welsh Rarebit where the flavours open-up under the heat of the grill and simply melt in the mouth.
As with all of their cheeses, the milk produced by the herd changes with the season and depending on which pasture they graze the day before, therefore each handmade cheese is unique, varying slightly in the background notes and texture.
The Torpenhow Cheese Company was formed at Park House Farm near the village of Torpenhow on the northern edge of the Lake District, Cumbria, in 2019, with the aim to turn the rich organic milk from our Jersey/Friesian herd into creamy deep-flavoured cheese.
Our family are definite cheese lovers and when we began our organic conversion we thought it was time to share our passion with others, so we converted an old hay barn opposite the farmhouse into a dairy and learned the craft of making cheese and butter.
