Every month we will bring you Cheese news from Foxholes Farm with some special Cheeses from our deli counter, offering advice, special offers and tastings to all our customers.. This month brings us different flavours suitable and ready for the autumn season.
Baron Bigod is the only traditional raw milk Brie-de-Meaux style cheese produced in the UK and one of only a handful of its type in the world to be made by the farmer on the farm. Beneath the nutty, mushroomy rind, Baron Bigod has a smooth, silky golden breakdown which will often ooze out over a delicate, fresh and citrussy centre. You will find long lasting flavours of warm earth, farmyard and mushrooms, with occasional notes of citrus and truffle. Baron Bigod is made by hand in small batches, very early in the morning so that they can use the raw milk still warm, straight from the cow at the perfect temperature for cheesemaking. The mould cultures are added to the warm morning’s milk and it is gently gravity fed into small vats just a few metres from the milking parlour, where the rennet is added. The curds are carefully hand-ladled into large moulds, using traditional pelle-a-brie ladles and the young cheeses are hand salted and then aged for up to 8 weeks in a cave-like environment. Baron Bigod is truly unique to Fen Farm Dairy. Its flavours, aromas and characteristics change with the seasons. It is a unique expression of the incredible milk of their free-ranging Montbeliarde cows and the diversity of their wildlife-rich grazing marshland. A true and edible account of the “terroir” of our special part of Suffolk, nestled in the elbow of the Waveney River Valley. Available in 250g truckles.
