White Lake Cheese – Award Winning Artisan Cheesemakers with an Eye for Innovation
Based in the heart of the Cheddar Country, White Lake Cheese was established in 2004 by Peter Humphries and Roger Longman. Over a decade later, we are famed for our extraordinary range of goats’, sheeps’ and cows’ milk cheeses.
White Lake’s home at Bagborough Farm is situated just off the Glastonbury festival site, in Pylle, Somerset. Milk used to create the goat cheeses, for which White Lake are renowned, is provided by Roger’s own herd – a mix of Toggenburg, British Alpine and Saanen goats. The herd are fed a specially adapted diet, ideal for cheesemaking, and graze outdoors at Bagborough Farm as much as possible. White Lake’s cows’ milk is sourced from a local Guernsey herd, and our sheeps’ milk is supplied by a flock also located just down the road.
With a passion for great cheese, and an eye for innovation, Roger and Pete have built White Lake into the award-winning business it is today. We have collected an assortment of awards and accolades, and over the years, Roger and Pete have added three more cheesemakers to our artisan army. As cheesemakers we are always experimenting and evolving our creations – we now produce a winning variety of 25 cheeses.
