Products of Lye Cross Farm (5)

The Alvis Family
The third generation of Farmers and Cheesemakers in Cheddar Valley since 1952 but the family have farmed the land for the last 400 years.

Three generations of the Alvis family have been making the highest quality Cheddar cheese using traditional methods and skills such as the age-old ‘Cheddaring’. This process of turning and stacking the curd by hand is now used alongside new technology. The cheese is matured under carefully-controlled conditions for up to 18 months. When it is time to select the cheese, expert graders decide which cheese is best eaten young and which should be left to mature and develop its special features and flavours associated with West Country Farmhouse Cheese.

The Alvis Family Business - A passion for cheese!
Since 1952 the Alvis family have been making the finest Farmhouse Cheeses at Lye Cross Farm, situated at the foot of Somerset’s Mendip Hills a few miles from the village of Cheddar.

More than 1,000 cows on the three Alvis family farms supply the rich milk to produce a quality range of traditional and organic Cheddars that make Lye Cross Farm Cheese so special. Whether farming organically or conventionally, there is a total and ongoing commitment to the care of the environment, the animals, employees and education for schoolchildren.

The Alvis family business has grown steadily and now takes milk from other farms in the surrounding area helping local farmers. The complete upgrade of the Cheese Dairy in recent years now means the annual capacity for cheese production is 6,000 tonnes.

As the leading UK organic cheese producer and one of the West Country’s finest Farmhouse Cheddar Cheesemakers we offer a full range of organic cheddar and UK territorial cheeses, together with West Country Farmhouse Cheddar and Traditional Farmhouse cheeses all under the prestigious Lye Cross Farm brand.

These products are sold from our farm shop to retailers large and small throughout the UK, with new markets opening abroad.

The PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) is a European quality mark proving the origin of the product is the Cheddar area and of highest quality.
