Two Suffolk-based cheese-makers are celebrating after scooping gold awards at the British Cheese Awards.

Baron Bigod, a Brie-de-Meaux style cheese made by dairy farmers Jonathan and Dulcie Crickmore of Fen Farm, Bungay, and White Wood Dairy’s St Jude’s cheese, which is also made at the farm, were awarded the accolade at last month’s Royal Bath & West Show, which hosts more than 800 British cheeses.

Julie Cheyney established White Wood Dairy in 2012 in Hampshire. In 2014, she moved to north east Suffolk where St Jude is now made using raw milk from a herd of predominately French Montbéliarde bred cows.

“This decision was strengthened by the commitment of the Crickmores to animal welfare and high standards of farming practice,” she said.

“The diverse grasses of the pastures combine with the distinct milk of the cows help to contribute to the complex flavours in St Jude.”
