Wyfe of Bath was crowned Supreme Champion at the International Cheese Awards 2019 and this superb cows’ milk cheese England’s answer to the Dutch gouda.

Wonderfully deep-golden in colour, its paste is firm and dense with occasional holes. Wyfe of Bath has a rich and nutty in flavour redolent of “buttercups and summer meadows”, that tends to linger leaving a pleasant buttery aftertaste. Enjoy with elegant red or medium-bodied white wines.

Wyfe of Bath is made at Park Farm where they take a traditional approach both to how they raise and graze their small herd of 160 mainly Holstein Friesian cows and to their artisan, handmade, hands-on cheesemaking.

The farm is entirely organic and registered with Organic Farmers and Growers. That means no fungicides, pesticides or artificial fertilisers are used on the land. Instead they use manure and organic compost: the environment, the land and the waterways remain uncontaminated. The milk and cheeses are produced in a way that protects our natural world and lets every farm animal feel the sun on its back.
