ADLESTROP WINS AT ROYAL THREE COUNTIES SHOW
Our cheeses were the stars of the Three Counties Show earlier this month, with our mild and buttery washed-rind Adlestrop winning Supreme Champion, after winning 1st place in the washed rind category. Baywell, our oozing and pungent washed-rind cow’s cheese, gave Daylesford another great prize in the same category as it scooped 2nd place. And if that wasn’t enough, our Double Gloucester was awarded 1st place in its category.

Double Gloucester: 1st in Double Gloucester category
This organic cheese is, like all our cheeses, made by hand on our farm, using artisan methods by our skilled cheesemakers. Adlestrop has a creamy, semi-soft texture and mild, buttery flavour. We recommend pairing it with toasted slices of our sourdough and a spoonful of our apple and chilli chutney. It’s also delicious with our slightly sweet organic oatmeal and manuka honey biscuits for cheese.
Our full-bodied, soft cow’s milk organic cheese, is shaped in Daylesford’s iconic heart-shape. The aroma of this popular rind-washed cheese is very strong and to the uninitiated it can be daunting – but the taste is sublime, and well-worth trying if you can. Baywell also won a gold award at the British Cheese Awards 2012, and went on to win ‘Best Organic Cheese’ at the show.
It’s size and shape make it perfect for a cheeseboard, and we’d recommend enjoying it generously spread on a plain biscuit like our organic spelt and rye biscuits for cheese, or paired with slices of refreshing apple or pears, whose light acidity balance this rich and creamy cheese.
ABOUT DOUBLE GLOUCESTERSHIRE
Our Double Gloucester cheese contains milk from our herd of heritage Gloucester cattle, and has a delicious firm texture and mellow flavour. We love it in a sandwich with crisp green leaves and some of our sweet organic butternut chutney.
Our cheeses are regularly winning awards, so if you haven’t tried them and want to know what all the fuss is about, pop down to one of our organic farmshops and treat yourself.
