Feltham’s Farm is sweeping the (cheese) board


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.’
