Tymsboro is made by Mary Holbrook at Sleight Farm in Somerset, from the milk of her own mixed-herd goats.
Our work with this cheese
Tymsboro arrives with us when it is about 1-3 weeks old, depending on what stage of the season we are in. Mary Holbrook decides on the quantity we will receive, and delivers it herself when she comes on a Wednesday to work with our maturation team. The cheese is dried to remove moisture, and at the height of the season the cheese can reach over 6 weeks of age before it is ready to be sold.
This short 'farm-visit' film features cheesemaker Mary Holbrook at her farm near Bath in Somerset. Mary has her own herd of around a hundred home-bred goats, or 'the league of nations' as she calls them. As we follow her around the farm, the true depth of her knowledge and experience reveals itself. We hope you enjoy watching it.
