Bó Rua Original Farm Cheddar
Each cheese is handmade by us here on the farm. We begin cheesemaking straight after morning milking, ensuring we use the freshest of milk. There are subtle variations in the cows milk composition depending on natural conditions such as weather and grass growth, so naturally our cheese varies ever so slightly with the seasons too.
Careful nurturing of the cheese is needed during maturation, with regular turning and grading. It takes a minimum of six months for our cheese to mature, by which time it has a firm yet delicately creamy texture and a full, approachable flavour.
We have received numerous awards award for our cheese, the most recent was a silver and two bronze medals at the Artisan Cheese Awards in April 2019.
