A little history about Quickes
The Quicke family has been farming since 1540 at Home Farm in the tiny village of Newton St. Cyres, Devon but the cheeses we know today have been developed over the past 45 years. Their herd of cows has been specially bred to produce the right balance of milk for their cheese, and locally sourced Cornish Sea Salt is used during production.
