Since 2016, Fraser Norton and Rachel Yarrow have been making their exceptional French-inspired goat's cheeses at the Earth Trust Farm in South Oxfordshire, a project run by an environmental charity that provides tenancies for new food businesses with a focus on sustainable land management. The milk used by Fraser and Rachel for Brightwell Ash now comes entirely from their own herd of goats. Brightwell Ash has a wrinkly ash-coated rind which may develop mould as it ages, offering a depth of character and subtle seasonal variations.

FAQs

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.

A great goat's cheese

This cheese manages to be both creamy and tangy. I really enjoyed it and will buy again soon.

Perfect cheese

A perfect goat's cheese..from the silky smooth melt in the mouth texture to the delicate fresh almost lemon taste, no 'goaty' aftertaste. Absolutely stunning.

We're happy to hear that Brightwell Ash went down well Jayne. Your feedback is much appreciate - many thanks!
Kind regards,
NYD
