Cheddar from Cheddar - Barber's 1833
"There's a place called Cheddar?" I hear you all ask! Yes, that's right, it's a little village in the heart of Somerset in the South West of England and it's where cheddar cheese originates from. And no-one knows that more than the Barber family, who live about 10 miles from Cheddar and who are the oldest cheese-makers in the UK, now in their 6th generation of cheese-making. And my goodness, they really have perfected that art over the past 6th generations; I think you'll struggle to find a better English cheddar than their 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar.
The question I get asked the most out here in Sydney is "Where can I buy a decent English cheddar?" Well the good news is that we are constantly shipping more and more 1833 over to Australia and it is stocked in Harris Farm Markets in Sydney and hundreds of independent retailers across Australia. You may see it as a 190g wedge or in the cut and wrap section of your local deli, so make sure you ask your deli manager if they're stocking it!
Made using traditional starter cultures (the friendly bacteria which start the cheese-making process), rich milk from cows from local farms, and always matured for at least 24 months, Barber's 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar is a deliciously creamy cheese with both savoury and naturally sweet notes. Only the very best leaves the dairy with the 1833 stamp.
Try melting it on toast, using it in an omelette, macaroni cheese, or simply on a cheese board with a glass of port - this really will leave you fully satisfied and never on the hunt for a decent cheddar again! Or have a look at our International website
