Special cheese features for the week of July 6th.

Our special cheese of the week (while supplies last).

Gorwydd Caerphilly

 

Caerphilly originated in Southern Wales and was originally a cheese eaten by coal miners since it was filling, cheap, and sturdy. As demand and popularity grew, cheddar makers in Somerset began to make Caerphilly with surplus milk after cheddar production. Since it ages much faster than cheddar, it was also a quicker source of income for the cheese makers. By the late 1800’s, most Caerphilly was made in England.

The cheese we have is made by Todd Trethowan, who learned cheese making from Chris Duckett, who learned cheesemaking from the original Somerset Caerphilly makers. Todd took the recipe back to Wales and began making cheese on his parents farm (with brother and sister-in-law). In 2014, with goals of improving milk and cheese quality, the cheesemaking operation moved to Somerset. Today, Todd and his brother Maugan are producing a traditional Farmhouse Caerphilly. The cheese is really flaky and lactic in the center. The natural rind lends mushroom aromas to the broken down paste by the edges. YUMMY.
