Wyke Farms: Tom’s Toasties

Bruton, Somerset, 16th August 2017 – Wyke Farms, the UK’s largest independent Cheese makers and producers of renewable energy, today announces ‘Tom’s Toasties’ – its mobile kitchen offering ‘toasties’ made with their award winning farmhouse Cheddar –  is taking to the road again this summer and pitching up at a host of events up and down the UK.

Named after Grandfather Tom Clothier, the kitchen sells toasties made using Wyke Farms award- winning Extra Mature Cheddar, crafted from the family’s 155-year-old recipe. The cheese is left undisturbed for around 12 months to develop a full and rounded flavour, graded by their Master Cheese Grader, and then sliced and added to the deliciously mouth-watering toasties.

This year the team will be serving two new specials:

  • Mushy peas and Extra Mature Cheddar
  • Monterey Jack, Chocolate Spread, and Marshmallows.

Toastie fans can also pick from a wide selection of other fillings too, making their Tom’s Toasties experience completely unique.
