Godminster was born of a passion for organic farming and wildlife conservation. Ever since Richard Hollingbery bought Godminster Farm in 1993, he and his team have been pursuing an environmentally friendly and ethical approach to farming. Their approach incorporates the organic principles to the land and the livestock.
“Nature repays those who treat her kindly” is Godminster’s motto and it’s from nature’s finest ingredients that we take all of our inspiration.
Richard made the first cheddar in 1999 as a thank you to friends and neighbours who had helped in the organic certification process, and once they tasted it, it soon became clear that cheese-making would be the way forward using the milk. The Vintage Organic Cheddar has gone from strength to strength winning numerous awards at prestigious cheese shows across the world. As well as the cheddar, and a stunning oak-smoked version of a Vintage Organic Cheddar, Godminster offers a range of delicious gifts to cater for the foodie in your life.
