Longman Cheese in Somerset

Longman

of Yeovil

The Longman family have been farmers and farmhouse cheesemakers in Somerset for over 100 years.

Today the Longman Group consists of eight farms with over 2,000 dairy cows grazing the rich fertile pastures of Somerset.

All of their milk is used to produce cheese. This provides consistency and the very best quality Farmhouse Cheddar – full of character with a fine balance of strength and depth of flavour. Plus just a hint of the fresh tang reminiscent of the Somerset Levels.

In addition to real Cheddar, their expert cheesemakers also produce an expanding range of great British cheeses and a low-fat Cheddar made with semi skimmed milk. So now there’s no excuse not to enjoy a real taste of Somerset!
