About

Baron Bigod is hand made on Fen farm in Suffolk where the Crickmore family have been farming for three generations. Their herd of Montbeliarde cows graze the beautiful marshlands of the Waveney River Valley and their delicious raw milk is used to make the finest artisan cheeses by cheesemaker Jonathan Crickmore.

Baron Bigod is the product of three years of learning, travel and experimentation creating a unique and delicious Brie like cheese.
The cheese is made on the farm in small batches very early in the morning, after the cows have been milked. The warm milk straight from the cows is perfect for cheese making and it is made just meters from the milking parlour.

The fresh curds are hand ladled into large moulds using traditional pelle-a-brie ladles and the young cheeses are then hand salted and aged for up to 8 weeks.

This traditional artisan process, only using the fresh warm milk creates a smooth delicate and silky texture. Baron Bigod is a soft, white bloomy – rind cheese with a golden curd and long lasting, earthy and mushroom flavours- very similar to a Brie de Meaux
