St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar


Weight approx 200g.

Unpasteurised cow’s milk



Crumbly and creamy


Fife, Scotland

WHAT IT TASTES LIKE: Powerful, sharp and tangy with a lingering complex flavour.
WHERE IT COMES FROM: The Stewart family have farmed at Falside in the East Neuk of Fife since the 1930s and have been making cheese by hand from the milk of their own Holstein cows since 2008. They are already well known for that modern Scottish classic Anster and they’ve come up with another winner here with their St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar. A serious rival to the best of the West Country Cheddars, St Andrews is rich, buttery and fruity with a golden yellow paste and is typically matured for between nine and 14 months. Competition judges agree about its quality – it's won gold at the International Cheese and Dairy Awards in 2021 and 2022, Best Cheddar, Best Scottish Cheese and Supreme Champion at The Royal Highland Show in 2021, silver at the World Cheese Awards 2018/2019, and bronze at the 2023 World Cheese Awards.
