Somerset cheese on sale at Clanfield Co-op

More people now have the chance to tuck in to two organic Somerset cheeses as they have been selected by a regional co-operative to be stocked in more than 20 stores.

The two cheeses created by Godminster, based in Bruton, will now feature in Southern Co-op's Local Flavours range which celebrates some of the best regional produce across the south of England.

Richard Hollingbery, who bought Godminster Farm in 1993, has an environmentally friendly and ethical approach to farming which led to the farm being certified as organic in 1999.

Matt Elliott, Retail Buying & Services Manager who looks after Local Flavours at Southern Co-op, said: "The commitment to sustainability by Richard and his team is commendable and echoes our own work as a regional co-operative - it is something we strive for and encourage people to consider when doing their shopping.

"With Christmas fast approaching, we hope that lots of people take the opportunity to sample this award winning cheese and we hope they love it just as much as we do."

The two cheeses being added to the Local Flavours range are the Godminster Mature Organic Cheddar which is an intensely creamy flavour and rich enough to be enjoyed alone on a cheeseboard, and Godminster Mature Organic Cheddar with Black Pepper, which offers a powerful twist.

Jessica Kimber-Holloway, Godminster's Commercial and Operations Director, said: "This new listing in Southern Co-op means the world to us, especially so soon following being awarded the UK's best large organic farm at the BOOM Awards. 

"The cows at Godminster Farm are raised organically and produce a deliciously creamy milk that is perfect for cheesemaking. Thank you Southern Co-op for including us in your fantastic range!"

The local Co-operative stores stocking the cheeses are Clanfield - White Dirt Lane and Denmead - Hambledon Road.
