Organic Saint Giles is a continental-style, semi-soft creamy cheese, similar to the Saint Paulin/Port Salut style of cheese. It has a rich, buttery texture, a creamy mild flavour and has a stunning edible orange rind, made using organic carrot.
Halloumi is a salty brined "squeaky" cheese, originally from the Mediterranean and traditionally made from sheep milk. Once dry fried or grilled, it takes on a completely different texture. We call it "the vegetarian's alternative to the rasher". We make two varieties, a 100% sheep milk Halloumi and this version, a blended Halloumi using cow and sheep milk. Try it toasted on a summer salad or in a stir fry, adding mushrooms, tomatoes, oregano, peppers and serving on a bed of rice, pasta or cous cous.
Ricotta (meaning re-cooked cheese) is a, compact semi hard salty cheese made using cow and sheep whey. We make it by heating the organic whey left over from making a hard cheese to 90°C, resulting in the soft cheese then floating to the surface. It is then Salted and left to press .Our Ricotta Salata is great grated onto salads, roasted vegetables, tomatoes, pasta dishes or pizza..
Our Oak Smoked Ashdown Forester’s is a young, firm un-pressed cheese with a creamy, slightly squidgy texture, which has been naturally smoked over oak shavings. It has an attractive shape and basket weave texture on the natural rind. Matured for around three months, Foresters is also available plain (unsmoked). Both are organic cheeses.
