Home Farm is a relative newcomer to cheesemaking. Currently on it's third generation of farmers, Ben and Adam Spence took the decision in 2016 to diversify into cheesemaking following huge volatility in the price of milk. They run the farm and cheesemaking facility, with their parents David and Susan, located in Aysgarth, Wensleydale right in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales.
This is a raw milk clothbound farmhouse Wensleydale produced in small batches to a slow traditional recipe, aged for 3 - 4 months. This results in a cheese that is smooth and creamy in texture, they use unpasteurised milk from their happy herd of 100 grass fed cows to give it even greater flavour.
Slightly tangy with a bitter aftertaste. It has a creaminess throughout, with quite earthy, farmy flavours. Mellow and smooth, very easy eating.
Pair with an Amontillado Sherry or Sauvignon Blanc.
