Cheddar cheese originates from the area surrounding the Somerset village of Cheddar situated in the Mendip Hills, which is famous for its network of ancient caves.... The most famous of these being Wookey Hole. The caves were originally inhabited by pre-historic man, but by the 16th century were being used to store locally made Cheddar cheese. This ceased approximately 300 years ago, but Ford Farm have once again introduced the practice of ageing and maturing their traditional West Country Farmhouse Cheddar within the caves.
