Hafod – Made by the Holden Family in WalesThe recipe for the cheese originated locally, from the late Dougal Campbell, a close friend of Patrick’s. Dougal learned to make cheese in the Swiss Alps before moving to West Wales in the early 1980s. Here he started making a cheese called T’yn Grug using milk from both his own herd and ours. Whilst doing so, Dougal trained a number of cheesemakers, including Simon Jones of Lincolnshire Poacher.
