Witheridge in Hay The first time Witheridge was entered for an award, it won three stars with Great Taste. The hay in which it is aged lends grassy notes to the rind as well as keeping the cheese beautifully moist. Witheridge has the strength of a mature cheddar, but the sweetness and umami notes of an Alpine cheese. It will hold its own on any cheese board. Allergens- Contains Located within the South Oxfordshire countryside in Nettlebed, the creamery was founded in 2015 by Rose Grimond to utilise the organic milk produced by her Grandfather’s 1950s farm, less than two miles down the road in Bix.
