Aveline – Made by Tim Homewood & Angela Morris in Ubley, Chew Valley, Bristol
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.
