HERD

Ayrshire cows

Bull - Hafod

Ayrshire milk is rich in butterfat and protein, and is widely regarded as being ideally suited to cheesemaking. It is this unique combination of organic Ayrshire milk and traditional cheesemaking techniques that give Hafod its buttery, rich and nutty flavours.

MILK

Unpasteurised

Trademark - Hafod

Raw milk or unpasteurised milk is milk that has not been pasteurised, a process of heating liquid foods to kill pathogens for safe consumption and extending the shelf life.

A Word on Rennet & Rind Maturing

"Moisture is extremely important in Hafod. If you lose it, you lose the signature fresh grassiness. So, we don't get overly complex about it. Low and slow seems to be the best method at preserving its unique flavour."


Perry James Wakeman - Cheese Guy & Maturer

Bwlchwernen Fawr, LlangybiLampeter, Wales, BRITISH ISLES
