Firm British Ewe's Milk Cheese

The texture of Fosseway Fleece is remarkably smooth and creamy. The flavour has a fresh and clean taste that ends in a nutty, mellow tang.

Fosseway Fleece takes its name from the old Roman ‘Fosse Way Road’ that runs close to the village of Ditcheat where the dairy is situated.

The Somerset Cheese Company was founded by long-term friends Philip Rainbow, and Nicholas and Anita Robinson. Based in the beautiful county of Somerset, not far from the famous Bath and West Showground, the Somerset Cheese Company is ideally placed in the heart of farming land. Philip has over 40 years experience in the craft of cheese making and his expertise is well renowned and respected. Philip and Anita worked together for many years before the Somerset Cheese Co. was formed, when Philip was the head cheese maker for a well renowned dairy on the outskirts of Wells in Somerset and Anita was his assistant. Now they have combined their individual talents along with Anita’s husband Nick who brings a wealth of day to day business knowledge.
