Our Story

Welcome to our farm in North Cadbury

Our family has been farming in North and South Cadbury for three generations.  Archie and Jamie’s grandfather, Sir Archibald Langman, bought the farm in 1911 and continued the traditional Cheesemaking while so many others gave up during and after the Second World War.  Sir Archibald’s daughter, Elizabeth Montgomery, took the helm from her father after her husband, John, bought the farm from his parents-in-law in 1963.  Elizabeth ensured that the high quality standards were adhered to by nurturing the recipe through the 1960s, 70s and 80s.  This was a brave strategy at a time when the growth of the supermarkets was seriously threatening the future of unpasteurised cheddar.

When Jamie inherited the role of cheese master of the family from his mother, the resurgence in the interest in food led to an increase in independent delicatessens and the desire for more knowledge about the food we eat.

Jamie is committed to every aspect of the production of his cheeses, from the quality of the grass that his cows graze through to the taste and texture of the final product.
