J.A. and E. Montgomery Ltd, Somerset
This family concern is based at Manor Farm, North Cadbury near Yeovil. Similar to Keens the Montgomery brothers James and Archie divide the work. Archie farms the land and James makes the cheese. James lives cheese and is committed to every aspect of its production, from the quality of the grass that his herd of Friesian cows graze, right through to the taste and texture of the final product - his award-winning Cheddar. The farm is not organic but benefits from very rich soil which, in turn, provides the excellent grazing which is the building block of top quality cheese production.
