Product Details

Baron Bigod is a gooey brie-style cheese, noted for its rich, earthy taste and lasting finish. Produced by Jonny Crickmore with milk from his Montbeliarde cows in Suffolk, the cheese is best when its wrinkly exterior matures to unveil a creamy, buttery texture beneath, with a core of delicate curd.

Jonny’s venture into cheese-making marked a significant shift for his family’s farm, operational for three generations. Seeking to produce top-quality cheese, Jonny sourced Montbeliarde cows from France, known for their high-protein milk essential for famous French cheeses like Comté. This breed was crossbred with the family’s Friesians, enhancing the herd’s quality.

Dedicated to excellence, Jonny ensures the milk is handled with care, from gravity-feeding it into the dairy to manually processing it into cheese. This artisan approach reflects Jonny’s commitment to producing Baron Bigod as a testament to superior dairy artisanship.
