English Raclette-Style Cheese

Ogleshield is most similar to Raclette in style, with its rich, fruity flavours, and lends itself to melting just as well. Try using on a Raclette grill or simply melting in a sandwich! Ogleshield won a Gold Medal at the 2015 British Cheese Awards.

Ogleshield is on Manor Farm in North Cadbury near Yeovil, where Montgomery Cheddar is made. The Montgomery family are third generation farmers and very little has changed about the methodology used in their cheese making process today, although using modern knowledge to create consistent quality. Even the same starter cultures that the family used over 70 years ago, continues to be used to ensure variety and depth of flavour in the cheese.

Alongisde the farm's herd of Friesian-Holsteins is a herd of jersey cows, the milk from which, always used to be sold as it was unsuitable for making Montgomery Cheddar. In 1998 a recipe was developed to use this jersey milk to make a hard cheese somewhere between Montgomery Cheddar and a tomme in style. The recipe was later adjusted to include washing in brine, which keeps in more moisture and encourages the sticky orange rind to form.

Cheese weights ordered in multiple quantities are always cut as one large piece, unless otherwise requested in the delivery notes section of checkout
