    Jarlsberg cheese is mild in taste with a sweet nutty flavour and characteristic round holes. Jarlsberg is a Norwegian Cheese that can be enjoyed just as it is or in cooking.

    In 1956 a group of students and scientists at the Agricultural University of Norway decided to explore the Swiss cheese legends and to combine them with modern cheese making technology. They trawled ancient texts and recipes, and under the leadership of Professor Ole Martin Ystgaard they created a cheese with fine, round holes and a gentle sweet nutty taste they named Jarlsberg.  It's recently been discovered that it's actually microscopic particles of hay pollen that cause the holes.  There's now a lot of scientists and cheese makers experimenting to get the perfect amount of holes (what ever that may be!?).

    One of the only places you can buy a large block of Jarlsberg.

    Jarlsberg is an essential component of our cheeseboard, but since Brexit it has become well nigh impossible to buy a block. The only source we know is the Mousetrap in Ludlow. So we make regular orders to satisfy our regular consumption. And delivery is quick and reliable. So - thank you and please keep rowing over more whole Jarlsbergs to these benighted shores.
