Fen Farm Dairy, Bungay, Suffolk
A stunning, traditional Brie-de-Meaux style cheese that is made on the farm and by hand in small batches from the milk of free-ranging Montbeliarde cows. Beneath the nutty, mushroomy rind, Baron Bigod has a smooth, silky golden breakdown which will often ooze out over a delicate, fresh and citrussy centre. The curds are carefully hand-ladled into large moulds and then aged for up to 8 weeks in a cave-like environment. It is a unique expression of the incredible and the diversity of our wildlife-rich grazing marshland.
