Mid strength and smooth

Delivery/Collection info
    Little Hereford is handmade at our local dairy at Monkland .  It is made to Helen Yeld's original recipe.  She was Herefordshire's chief dairy maid in the 19th Century.  
    One of our customers who is in her 90s remembers Ellen, who used to ride around on her bike selling cheese from the basket on the front, always wearing a huge hat with an enormous feather in and lovely full length dresses, not the image I had in my mind of a dairy maid!  The cheese itself is mediu strength but has a nice lingering flavour, matured for 4 months it still has a freshness about it that mixes with the hard but slightly crumbly texture of the cheese, melting into a pleasant creamy mouthful as you get going.  Made with unpasteurised milk and traditional rennet.

    This makes a beautiful base to a wedding cheese and it's often paired as a semi circle with Worcester Hop to give guests a bit more option of 2 really nice hard cheeses in one layer.
