Fiery Fred’s Crazy Cheddar

(67 customer reviews)


With a natural flavour strong enough to wake the dead this Cheddar is not for the faint hearted.



Fiery Fred’s Crazy Cheddar is named after our very own Fred Gould who’s late Mother ‘Mrs Gould’ started making cheese here at Batch Farm back in 1964. This Cheddar has a natural hint of onion and at 18 to 36 months mature is the most senior member of our Cheddar range. Having built up a reputation here in Somerset as ‘the strongest cheddar around’ if you love stinky cheese this is the one for you.

  3. mark taylor (verified owner)

    What an outstanding cheese. Not just strong (though it is) but with a ‘rural’ flavour character you just don’t get from supermarket cheeses. I’ll be back for more!

    I was introduced to Fiery Fred’s by a friend and decided to order some for myself! I was super impressed with the speed and quality of delivery, and it is amazing, I highly recommend this cheese if you love a strong cheddar.

    Weapons-Grade Cheddar, what Pilgrims and Cathedral city vintage fail to be (as reasonable as they are) this is what A mature, hard cheese should be.

    Do not eat without a good Merlot or Pinotage even an East-Coast IPA

    Absolutely fantastic

    The best cheese I have ever tasted in my whole life. Ever. Makes everything else taste blander than Coldplay. The dog’s bollocks! My wife thinks it’s disgusting and I have to keep it in the shed. THAT’s how good it is!

  29. maurice gardiner (verified owner)

    great cheese as usual

  30. gerald clifford (verified owner)

    Pongs a bit, needs to be well wrapped when in the fridge. But if you like strong cheddar (strongest I’ve EVER tasted) then it’s well worth it. A cheese to savour.

    The finest Cheddar I have ever tasted. A crusty roll, a good think slice of Fiery Fred, a thick slice of raw onion and a pint of dry cider, I’ve gone to heaven.

  46. Chris Saville (verified owner)

    First cheese that I have ever been able to smell BEFORE I opened the sealed wrapper! Certainly has a bite with a hint of onion!
    Strongest cheddar I have found and I have had very very many disappointments previously! Will have to try the others next!

    This one was so strong we had to double bag it! Fantastically sharp on the tongue, and mouth wateringly mature. It certainly lives up to its name.

    Still the best cheddar ever !! The dairy was also very flexible by posting the cheese rather than sending by courier which saved money based on the small order that I placed
