Bix is a soft, unpasteurised, triple cream cheese, named after the village where the herd grazes in Oxfordshire.

Nettlebed Creamery has been organic since 2001 and its healthy, robust herd comprises a three-way cross of Montbéliarde, Swedish Red and Holstein Friesian. The cows graze on grass and clover leys with additional herbs such as chicory, plantain and yarrow. The quality of the milk and the terroir of the farm is expressed wonderfully in the cheeses.

Bix is a triple cream cheese made by adding double cream to unpasteurised milk. The curds are put into moulds and these are turned frequently giving the cheese an even, thin coating for the rind.The recipe is loosely based on that of a Chaource, a luxuriant white-rind cheese from Champagne country in northern France.

When young the cheese has a rich ice cream like texture. As the cheese matures, the typical mushroom aroma of these soft style cheeses comes through.
