The Keen family have been making Unpasteurised Keens Cheddar since we moved to Moorhayes Farm in 1899. Five generations later we are still here and proud to be producing world famous, award winning British Cheddar Cheese.
Well, that’s the short story.
Back in 1899 there were hundreds of local producers of cheese, and today Keens are one of only a small handful of those who have survived the test of time and are making traditional cheddar the way it should be, with raw unpasteurised milk from grass fed cows living on our own farm. Our ladies spend most of their days living in our 500 acre back yard and dining on lush Somerset pastures, their precious milk is then transported a mere 50 yards to the dairy where the magic of true cheddaring happens and the cheese then lives, maturing for up to 18 months.
You can purchase our Cheddar through your trusted quality wholesaler, direct from quality Delicatessens and Specialist Cheese Stores, from Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and selected Marks & Spencer Stores. Or, if you prefer, our cheese can be purchased directly from our farm in 25kg, 3kg and 1.5kg truckles. If you are looking for smaller quantities you can buy it in smaller wedges of varying sizes to suit.
But if you really want to know how great our award winning cheese is before you make your purchase don’t just take our word for it, take a look at our Awards & Recognitions page, it is updated extremely regularly.
