With its beautiful deep colour, smooth texture and slightly nutty flavour notes, we’re really pleased with how the latest of our ‘skinny’ cheeses has turned out.  This is a traditional red farmhouse cheese, and this batch has been maturing since January, when it was made with our lower fat winter milk.

Why skinny? It’s because the way we manage our herd 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. This is the third.

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.

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.
