    We consdier ourselves a "bespoke" cheesemaker able to craft individual recipes and products to meet clients needs. Our core business is conventional and organic cheese production but we have recently launched a 100% Grassfed Cheddar for the US market. Our West Country Farmhouse Cheddar carries a Protected Designation of Origin from the EU attesting to its provenance and authenticity. A short film can be seen here.

    The business has recently been awarded a Board of Trade Award for our export efforts and the team have been appointed as Export Champions with other companies in the South West. Good to see our efforts in 40 countries worldwide recognised.

  • Hi @Tim Harrap

    Thank you for sharing what Alvis Bros makes with the Community. On a personal note I absolutely adore cheese so I will definitely look out for Lye Cross Farm the next time I'm shopping.

    Congratulations on your recent export awards. I hope I can come down and visit one day.

    Best regards,

    Daniel.
