The Home Farmer ‘Old Roan’ farmhouse Wensleydale cheese is new to our range and you simply must give it a try. The Home Farmer’s Old Roan is a Wensleydale cheese, made by Ben and Sam Spence in Aysgarth in small batches by hand on their farm. Using a traditional recipe and unpasteurised milk from their own herd they produce a Wensleydale like they used to! Tasting notes: this cheese as creamier and less crumbly than the typical Wensleydale of our recent years, it has a complex but light flavour with a delightful freshness.
Old Roan, Wensleydale 250g
Old Roan Wensleydale is the only farmhouse, small batch Wensleydale made with unpasteurised cows’ milk still made in Aysgarth, Yorkshire by Sam and Ben Spence at the Home Farm. The cows are milked just 5 metres from where the cheese is made and Sam and Ben own the Holstein and Fresian cow herd grazed on grass in the Yorkshire Hills, so have complete control over the provenance of the cheese. Old Roan Wensleydale is made to a traditional recipe, then cloth-bound and matured for 3-4 months giving it a beautiful, creamy texture and farmyard taste…as they say you can taste the terrior in this cheese.
