With our magnificent dairy herd, traditional recipes, skilled cheese makers and lush green Devon hills Quickes produce the finest traditional cheeses you can buy. Our most famous product is Traditional Mature Cheddar, a far cry from the block cheddars that flood the market today. By slowly maturing a muslin-wrapped truckle for a year, we allow it to breathe, producing a beautiful rinded cheese with a unique and complex flavour.
The Quicke family have been farming in Newton St Cyres for over 450 years. The dairy at Home Farm is set in 1500 acres of stunning Devon countryside, where our 500 dairy cows provide the rich creamy milk to make our cheese. Care for this beautiful environment and the welfare of our animals lie at the very heart of the Quickes philosophy.
Traditional cheese making is an art. Our skilled cheese makers have over 100 years experience between them, and work to original recipes dating back several generations. The process is incredibly labour intensive and reliant on all the human senses to discern the subtle changes that separate a good cheese from a world class one. Once the cheese is made it is wrapped in muslin cloth and matured on special racks in perfect condition to allow the cheese to breather. As a result, Quickes Traditional is unlike most cheddars with its rind and unrivalled depth and complexity of flavour.
