About

This cheese is made with vegetarian rennet but due to lard being used to adhere the cloth to the rind, it cannot be classed as a vegetarian product.

In the heart of the stunning Bride Valley in Dorset, Paxton & Whitfield's Cheddar Truckles are handmade to a traditional recipe using pasteurised milk from local herds. The Truckles are then taken and matured in the historic Wookey Hole Caves of Wells, Somerset, where the flavour picks up a distinctive complexity from the unique environment.

Wookey Hole Caves have existed for millions of years, and first provided a safe and comfortable place to live for the Celtic People of the Iron Age, as then, like now, they held a consistent temperature of 11 degrees celcius.The cheeses are kept in these caves to mature for up to three months.
