Little Rollright 250g

£10.99

A mellow, buttery, ‘washed-rind’ cheese that expresses the rich and diverse clover pasture of Chedworth’s Manor Farm. It is based on the classic French cheese Reblochon and encircled in a spruce band that helps hold it together and adds a pine-y note to the cheese.

Winner of ‘Supreme Champion’ (Artisan Cheese Awards 2016) and ‘Best Soft Cheese’ (Great British Cheese Awards 2016).

Producer: David Jowett at Manor Farm

In early March 2015 David set up a partnership with the Haine family (fifth-generation owners of King Stone Farm in the North Cotswolds) to create a brand new cheese.  The farm contains the ‘King Stone’ – one of the ancient Rollright Stones – a site of special religious and spiritual significance for pagans.

After making cheese there for several years, farming changes and his objective to make more, and better quality cheese, saw David move his dairy in 2019 up the road to Chedworth in neighbouring Gloucestershire.  Chedworth’s Manor Farm has in recent years returned to more traditional farming techniques including planting (and feeding cows) on the farm’s diverse and plentiful clover and herbal leys (a dozen native grass species!) and using traditional British breeds of cows (such as the Dairy Shorthorn).

The cheese recipe is similar to that of French washed-rind cheeses, and is regularly washed in brine giving it a thin, orangey-red rind and soft, buttery interior reminiscent of the farm’s clover pastures.
