Cornish Gouda

Cornish Gouda is made by a Dutch family that moved to Cornwall in 1998. They own a family run dairy farm in Lanreath near Looe producing high quality milk from pedigree Holstein Friesians. Due to poor milk prices they began looking to improve the sustainability of their business and their farm with the production of cheese using the milk produced by themselves.

They now produce a variety of aged original and flavoured Cornish Gouda cheeses. Winners of Best Hard Cheese at the Great British Cheese Awards 2016.

Mild Gouda

Ready to eat as early as 6 weeks from production but is best served between 2-3 months. The cheese is great in sandwiches and is particularly popular among children due to its mild flavour.

Medium Gouda

Aged between 3-4 months and is slightly creamier and slightly stronger tasting than the mild Gouda.

Semi-Mature Gouda

Aged between 5-6 months and is perfect for those who like a cheese with a bit of a kick to it but still very creamy.

Gouda with herbs

Herbs such as ‘Fenugreek’, ‘Honey & Clover’ and ‘Italian herbs’. This is best served between 3-5 months maturity. Just like the mild Gouda, this cheese is very versatile; it is great on sandwiches and fantastic on a cheeseboard.

Mature Gouda

Requires a much longer period to mature. The cheese is easy eating, but offers more complex and richer flavours than its mild brother.

    I just visited the farm. Its prize winning Gouda cheeses have very special and unforgettable flavours. The enterprise is amazing. It is a very well stewarded energy efficient enterprise. And a fine example of the extraordinary services provided by the farming community to the rest of us. November 2016

    Fantastic – a revelation if you have only ever tasted supermarket Dutch Gouda. The fenugreek flavour is addictive!
