Fiery Fred’s Crazy Cheddar

With a natural flavour strong enough to wake the dead this Cheddar is not for the faint hearted.




Fiery Fred’s Crazy Cheddar is named after our very own Fred Gould who’s late Mother ‘Mrs Gould’ started making cheese here at Batch Farm back in 1964. This Cheddar has a natural hint of onion and at 18 to 36 months mature is the most senior member of our Cheddar range. Having built up a reputation here in Somerset as ‘the strongest cheddar around’ if you love stinky cheese this is the one for you.

    I read that it paired really well with the cheese curds in a toasted sandwich. It really was very good. Glad I got it to try!

  12. Struan (verified owner)

    Extremely potent cheese that needs to be experienced to be believed. I never thought cheddar could be so flavorful.

    Too strong for me

  15. Lianne Samme (verified owner)

  16. Nicholas R. (verified owner)

    I should have read the description better as there’s nothing ‘Fiery’ about this cheddar. It is a strong taste though.

  17. Jeff Williams (verified owner)

    Unique taste.

  18. Leanne S. (verified owner)

    Unique taste, worth trying . I used it in a cheese and olive bread

  19. Jim Canning (verified owner)

    This is certainly very strong in flavour and taste.

  20. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Okay, this is a bit crazy. Possibly the strongest non-blue cheese I’ve ever had. Tastes better than it smells. While interesting, not sure it would be one I’d have too often.

  21. robert horwood (verified owner)

    Super super strength. We were delighted. Was as described on the “box”. What a fantastic tasting strong cheese. Will be ordering again

  41. Glyn Parker (verified owner)

    Still the best cheddar ever !! The dairy was also very flexible by posting the cheese rather than sending by courier which saved money based on the small order that I placed

  42. Sheryn (verified owner)

    Good service and great smelly but fab cheese

  43. Maurice (verified owner)

    excellent as usual

  44. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    This one was so strong we had to double bag it! Fantastically sharp on the tongue, and mouth wateringly mature. It certainly lives up to its name.

  45. Peter (verified owner)

  51. Chris Saville (verified owner)

    First cheese that I have ever been able to smell BEFORE I opened the sealed wrapper! Certainly has a bite with a hint of onion!
    Strongest cheddar I have found and I have had very very many disappointments previously! Will have to try the others next!

  52. Michael Wills

    The finest Cheddar I have ever tasted. A crusty roll, a good think slice of Fiery Fred, a thick slice of raw onion and a pint of dry cider, I’ve gone to heaven.

  66. Robin Foot (verified owner)

  67. gerald clifford (verified owner)

    Pongs a bit, needs to be well wrapped when in the fridge. But if you like strong cheddar (strongest I’ve EVER tasted) then it’s well worth it. A cheese to savour.

  68. maurice gardiner (verified owner)

    great cheese as usual

  69. John Baine (verified owner)

    The best cheese I have ever tasted in my whole life. Ever. Makes everything else taste blander than Coldplay. The dog’s bollocks! My wife thinks it’s disgusting and I have to keep it in the shed. THAT’s how good it is!

  89. Rosalyn Honeyman (verified owner)

    I love it

  90. Martin Nicholas

    Weapons-Grade Cheddar, what Pilgrims and Cathedral city vintage fail to be (as reasonable as they are) this is what A mature, hard cheese should be.

    Do not eat without a good Merlot or Pinotage even an East-Coast IPA

    Absolutely fantastic

  91. vicki luck (verified owner)

    I was introduced to Fiery Fred’s by a friend and decided to order some for myself! I was super impressed with the speed and quality of delivery, and it is amazing, I highly recommend this cheese if you love a strong cheddar.

  92. maurice gardiner (verified owner)

    tastiest cheddar available

  93. Liz Trudgeon (verified owner)

    The nicest cheddar we’ve ever had. Really mature

  94. mark taylor (verified owner)

    What an outstanding cheese. Not just strong (though it is) but with a ‘rural’ flavour character you just don’t get from supermarket cheeses. I’ll be back for more!

  95. Robert Horwood (verified owner)

    wonder full service and wonderfull cheese

  96. Michelle Bloomfield (verified owner)

    My favourite cheese, rich and full of flavour very aromatic
