A creamy, firm cheese with a sweet, fresh flavour, made with the lower fat milk produced by our herd in January and February. This is the second of two test batches of this style of cheese. Why Skinny? Here’s the story behind the name…

The way we currently manage our farm means the calves arrive in two fairly short blocks of time, one half of the herd calve in autumn and the other half in the spring. This means there’s a seasonal cycle to the composition of the milk, and what fluctuates most is the butterfat content.  During January and February the butterfat content of our milk was so low that we couldn’t make our usual cheeses so we experimented with some low fat test batches.

Photo for illustrative purposes.  Made with unpasteurised milk from our cow with calf organic dairy farm. Cheese is cut to order to maximise shelf life. This cheese has a best before date of four weeks after cutting.

All our cheeses are made with vegetarian rennet.

500g wedge.

Your cheese order will be delivered in Woolcool bags, a system of eco-friendly insulated packaging made from sheep’s wool. These special cool bags keep our cheeses below  5oC  for 48 hours so that they reach you perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy. Cheeses are sent using a next day delivery courier service, however occasionally delivery can be delayed. This is happening more frequently during the coronavirus crisis and so we cannot guarantee delivery on your requested date. Please be reassured that our insulated packaging and chill packs have been designed to accommodate a 48 hour delivery window. Therefore, if you receive your cheese a day later than expected, the cheese will be absolutely fine. The Sorba-freeze ice packs we use are reusable, they can be dehydrated (on a radiator) and rehydrated with water and refrozen.
