Feltham’s Farm is sweeping the (cheese) board

Date:

Feltham’s Farm Organic Cheeses has clinched the title for Best Organic Cheese at the Artisan Cheese Awards 2024 with its renowned La Fresca Margarita, also securing a Gold in the Fresh Class. The competition saw an impressive turnout with over 600 entries from across the UK and Ireland, setting the stage for a fiercely contested event.
La Fresca Margarita stood out among stiff competition, surpassing well-known hard cheeses such as Caws Teifi Heritage and Holden Cheese’s Hafod Cheddar in the Organic category. La Fresca Margarita is crafted as a soft Organic Queso Fresco, and is made from the finest single-source organic milk provided by neighbouring Somerset farm Godminster’s herd. Owner and cheesemaker Marcus Fergusson says: ‘People are really coming back to these young, fresh, un-aged cheeses, and we are delighted that judges are also recognising how simple cheese is often the hardest to make really well – this win is tribute to Michael Leech and the cheesemaking team.’
