A raw milk atrisan brie style cheese made by Fen Farm Dairy.
Baron Bigod is a soft white bloomy-rind cheese, handmade on our farm by Jonny and the team, using the raw milk of our grass fed Montbeliarde cows.
Our cheese is made by hand in small batches, very early in the morning so that we can use the raw milk still warm, straight from the cow at the perfect temperature for cheesemaking. The mould cultures are added to the warm morning’s milk and it is gently gravity fed into small vats just a few metres from the milking parlour, where the rennet is added. The curds are carefully hand-ladled into large moulds, using traditional pelle-a-brie ladles and the young cheeses are hand salted and then aged for up to 8 weeks in a cave-like environment.
The flavours, aromas and characteristics of Baron Bigod are influenced by the rich variety of grasses and herbs that grow i the beautiful Waveney River Valley.
