The Cheddar is made using traditional methods the family has used for generations. Their cloth bound cheddar is not released before 12 months of age, with some of their cheese needing 14 months. Whilst maturing on pine boards, it is hand turned and rubbed about every 3 weeks, this gives the cheese its distinctive flavour.
About Bay of Fires (TAS)
Ian Fowler is a 13th generation cheese maker, with his younger brother also still making cheese in England. The Fowlers are England's oldest cheese making family, going back nearly 400 years, with Ian carrying on the tradition on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania!
Ian was brought up on the family farm, England's oldest purpose built cheese factory still being used today, learning his skills from his Father and Grandfather. The knowledge and techniques for handcrafting farmhouse cheeses have been passed down from generation to generation.
