Hand Made Farmhouse Extra Tasty Cheddar Cheese

Kept between 12 and 18 months. This Cheddar gets extremely tasty and is considered one of the best handmade cheddars in the country.



You will not find cheese like this in the supermarket! This is Farmhouse cheddar at its finest. The distinct extra mature nutty flavour of our Extra Tasty Cheddar will transport you back through the ages to rural Somerset. Back to the good old days of hay making in the sun, slowly ploughing fields with your trusty horse and hand milking the herd using only a bucket and a three legged stool. Traditionally matured for 12 to 18 months this cheddar packs a punch while still retaining a smooth texture. A firm favourite with the locals, this cheese also has an international reputation with Gold awards at the ‘World Cheese Awards’ and more recently, a Gold at ‘The Global Cheese Awards 2016’. Take this opportunity to tuck into a slice of history.

  12. Rheanne C. (verified owner)

    Lovely cheese!

  13. Terry Ronaldsen (verified owner)

    As always the cheese is great. I have never tasted better and the couriers 1st class. Keep doing what your doing.

  14. Terry Ronaldsen (verified owner)

    This cheese is delicious it’s as good if not better than I’ve ever tasted.

  15. Paul Shires (verified owner)

    You may think that it doesn’t taste the way you expect and that’s because it’s so good. It’s going to be hard to go back to over processed stuff that shops sell. We’ll worth the delivery cost.

  16. Terry Ronaldsen (verified owner)

    Yet again your cheese is fantastic and the courier you use are 1st class. I cannot thank you all enough, keep doing what you’re doing.

  17. Terry Ronaldsen (verified owner)

    Service is brilliant, fast delivery and cheese just like I remember it to be when I lived in the area 30yrs ago.

  18. C Copeland (verified owner)

    Brilliant cheeses and delivery!

  19. Deborah (verified owner)

    Happy with the quick delivery but did not like being sent a heap of small portions instead of my usual 2×800 packs. Rather spoiled this order for me.

  20. C Copeland (verified owner)

    Superb service. I will be a regular after discovering your cheese at Glastonbury caravan campsite! Love the Tasty Cheddar in particular! Please send me any discount vouchers or codes and I will buy some for friends!

    highly recomended and a very tastey cheese

  27. Deborah (verified owner)

    Fabulous cheese, I like really strong cheddar and the extra tasty has delivered every time. Just wish I could buy it locally as the delivery costs would buy me an extra cheese! Very good and quick service from Batch Farm.

  28. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Usual amazing quality, cant get enough of this cheese, will never go back to a bog standard cheddar

  29. Alexander B. (verified owner)

    Arrived half melted, presumably because it had been exposed to the enormous high heat in w/c 18 July. This might well have happened on the Courier’s premises rather than at Batch Farm.

  30. Karen h. (verified owner)

    I regularly order 2 blocks but they has got to be the best so far. The flavour was amazing and so strong. I think my next order will be sooner this time as it is so moorish

  31. Ashley Baker (verified owner)

    I love cheese – and for me there is NO comparison to this cheese; just the ultimate – thank you for making it!!! Literally tell everyone about this cheese 🙂 !!!

  36. Mike Crossman (verified owner)

    Best cheddar clue is in the name

  37. James Sproat (verified owner)

    The best cheese you can buy in my view. Creamy with a lingering after taste, just how I like it.
    Great and fast service. I will be coming back for more orders.

  38. Kim Stygall (verified owner)

    Unfortunately, we received 2x Extra Tasty 800g and 1x Fiery Fred 800g instead of 3x Extra Tasty. Was there a reason for this?

  39. Michael Kelly (verified owner)

    Haven’t tried it yet but the service was good.

    OMG This is the best cheese EVER. I will never go back to an ordinary cheddar again. It is costing a fortune to deliver but worth it, the only problem is that I am buy it in large quantities to save on postage but just end up eating more of it. I may end up having to move closer to the Farm😁

  45. Megan (verified owner)

  46. James Sproat (verified owner)

    The Handmade Farmhouse Extra Tasty is a unique cheese in the best sense of the word. Like it says it is extremely tasty, creamy beyond any cheese I’ve tasted, it melts in your mouth and lingers there. It truly is the finest of cheeses in my view. I will certainly be ordering again very soon!
    I can’t recommend this cheese and farm business highly enough.

  47. robert horwood (verified owner)

    Really lovely cheese, I love strong cheese and you just can’t buy it in the shops, this one ticks all the boxes, love it. Easy to order and very quick delivery, knocked one star off just because of the postage costs, otherwise excellent!

  65. David Ponting (verified owner)

    Great cheese, quick delivery, really pleased.

  66. Elisa (verified owner)

    The best cheddar I’ve ever had. I tasted it and bought it last Sunday at Queens Park Farmers Market London. Ce fromage est une tuerie. Avis aux Français qui liraient ce message, il faut vraiment le goûter. C’est un goût incroyable. I order it again from France today. Thank you !

    promt service and very tasty cheese

  115. ROBERT HORWOOD (verified owner)

    a wondefull tasty cheese

  116. Michael Pearce (verified owner)

    Definitely my favourite of the two. Very strong flavour with no unpleasant after taste that one gets with “mass produced” cheese. Perfect companion to crusty bread, pickled onion and home made tomato chutney washed down with locally produced cider. Heaven on a plate. Well done Mr/Mrs/Ms cheesemaker

  117. ROBERT HORWOOD (verified owner)

    if you like a tasty chedder, this is another good cheese

  118. Jeff Williams (verified owner)

    Lovely tasting cheese. Great aftertaste.

    So much tastier than supermarket cheese!

  122. ROBERT HORWOOD (verified owner)

    the hand made is allso a very tasty cheddar

  123. Robin Boyes (verified owner)

    If cheese alone was to be scored, then 10 out of 5 would represent an unfair score. This cheese not only has a taste of its own but can be judged as one of Britain’s best, the French really should be given a chance of the experience. The only reason for the lack of a point is the delivery, which I hasten to add was nothing of the cheesemakers or farmers doing. This is the kind of cheese one wishes to tell and show everyone that you have found, one for the cheeseboard, permanently.

    wonderfull service and brilliant cheese
