Aveline is a soft, white bloomed, raw ewes (sheep's) milk cheese made by Tim and Angela on Homewood farm in Ubley, Somerset. Named after Aveline's Hole, the oldest scientifically-dated burial grounds in Somerset. The purposeful hole, as well as a nod to the caves, provides a purposeful use allowing equal ripening of the cheese.
As a raw milk cheese the flavour changes throughout the year, in the winter Aveline is very soft and milky tasting, while in the summer Aveline is stronger and firmer. Aveline is made with vegetarian rennet making it suitable for vegetarians and also those with lactose intolerance.
Each invidually wrapped cheese is approximately 150g.
Homewood cheeses specialise in unpasteurised, artisan ewes milk cheeses. Aveline makes a stunning centre piece, whether on a cheese board or as the very top layer of a celebration cake of cheese.
