In our quest to celebrate traditional cheese making techniques, we have revived the ancient art of maturing cheese in caves, a practice that dates back as far as the 16th century. 
Firstly, we create delicious, full bodied farmhouse cheddar at our Dorset Cheese Farm using milk from local herds. 
We then wrap the cheese in cloth and take it to the Caves at Wookey Hole where it is transported deep into the heart of the caves.  We leave the cheese to mature in this constant atmosphere for up to six months. 
We taste it regularly and test its texture to ensure it retains its moisture and takes on the full flavour and earthy characteristics of these historic caves.  The result of our labour of love is our award-winning Wookey Hole Cave Aged Cheddar.   

You can see our cheese maturing
when you visit Wookey Hole Caves.
