Kingdom Organic Cheddar has beaten 4,443 cheeses from 26 countries to win the Gold Awards for Farmhouse/Traditional Mature Cheddar, Export Award, and Cheddar/Cheddar Style at the International Cheese Awards competition in Nantwich, England.

Kingdom, one of the newest entries in the US cheese market, is a handcrafted cheddar, made with milk from a small number of organic family farms located in Devon, Southwest England.

"Our cows are kept on a simple grass based system with little or no stress, giving us beautiful, natural milk," said Geoff Thorne, one of the farmers who produces milk for Kingdom Cheddar.

"Our cows are on pasture more than 10 months each year with green grass comprising more than 80% of their diets."

The International Cheese Awards is one of the most well-known competitions for cheese makers around the world. More than 200 judges spend two days selecting the world's top cheeses.
