We were hosts to the British Cheese Awards on Friday. And so it was that 910 different varieties of cheese arrived at the farm on Thursday. It doesn't sound that bewildering, but a good delicatessen probably only carries a couple of dozen varieties. Mayhem, it was. A cavalcade of cars and couriers; crates of the stuff pouring up the drive. From every corner of the kingdom they came, from Cornish Yarg to Orkney Cheddar, Lincolnshire Poacher to a highly prized Swiss-style cheese called Desmond from West Cork.

Along with hundreds of others, Christopher Anderson yesterday braved the torrential rain of a Gloucestershire hillside to take part in a bizarre local custom: he ran down a near-vertical slope in pursuit of a round of cheese. Victorious, he was the first to seize it. But, in doing so, he picked up more than just a malodorous dairy product. The muddy, frenetic some might say downright lethal conditions on that hill eventually saw Anderson carted away on a spinal board by medics, following suspected injury to his back.

We may be the subject of European culinary ridicule, but nobody – not even Charles de Gaulle – could accuse the British of not being good at making cheese. With British Cheese Board putting the number of varieties in the UK at more than 700, it seems that the small-cheesemaker is on the rise.
