A brand new Artisan Somerset Cheddar made by brothers, Todd and Maugan Trethowan, just seven miles from Cheddar Gorge. Moist and succulent in texture, it is full-flavored with a hint of tropical fruit on the finish.
Cheddar is ubiquitous throughout the world, but precious few have truly earned the name. Pitchfork joins a select band of authentic, Artisan Somerset Cheddars that have been accepted into the Slow Food Presidium, which aims to protect traditional foods that are at risk of extinction. It is a worthy addition. Dense and fudgy in texture, with full savoury flavors reminiscent of beef stock, followed by a lingering sweet finish. Named after the pitchforks that are used to toss the curds in the salt just after milling and before packing into the moulds.
Gold medal at the 2018 World Cheese Awards and went on to win Best Traditional Cheddar at the 2019 British Cheese Awards.

How We Ship
Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality.
For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
