About Our Supplier
Village Maid Cheese Ltd:
Village Maid Cheese was started by Anne Wigmore in 1986 after she had been working for the National Institute for Research in Dairying in Shinfield for 10 years, initially in the microbiological department, and then learning the craft of cheese making in their research dairy. Anne was inspired by her travels to Sardinia using sheep’s milk to create her first cheese Spenwood and subsequently the delicate semi-soft cheese Wigmore. Today with husband Andy, her family and hard-working staff, they are continuing to produce award winning artisan cheeses. More recently they have embraced the additional support of their son Jake and his partner Kayleigh into the business who have both been instrumental in developing a fourth cheese, Maida Vale. This new addition, launched in November 2017 is made using Channel Island cow’s milk and is rind-washed in a local craft beer called Soundwave from Siren Craft Brewery whose brewery is situated just six miles from the dairy.
