edmund tew cheese

REGION Kent, England



Taste ranges from fresh and lemony when young to meaty & savoury when a little aged.

Made to a  Langres recipe which a pungent French washed-rind cheese.

Edmund Tew is similarly ‘washed’ to give the cheese its beautiful orange-pink coat.

This also allows the outer surface of the cheese to break down giving it a savoury farmyard buttery-ness to contrast its acidic, lactic core.

Made by David Holton and Tim Jarvis of Blackwoods Dairy on Commonwork Farm in Chiddingstone, Kent.


From the dairy    We use only the freshest milk which we collect while still warm, as the cows are being milked. The herd at Commonwork consists of a mix of Friesian x Holsteins, Swedish Red and Montbeliarde cows giving us a milk that is higher in fat and protein than standard dairy cows and perfect for cheese making.  Commonwork Organic farm take a regenerative approach to agriculture, a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds and enhances ecosystems.
