Award-winning British Soft Cheese with a focus on 'greener Farming'

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

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 milk is pasteurised 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 milk is then pasteurised in the dairy,  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. The makers -Jonny and Dulcie Crickmore are committed to 'greener farming' through the use of solar power, heat exchange (harnessing the heat extracted from the warm cows' milk and using it to help heat washing water for the milking parlour) and also through reduced fuel consumption.
