Focus on Local - Neneview Dairy cheeses
Neneview Dairy currently produces 11 different varieties of hard goat cheese. All of the milk comes from their own “trip” of goats and is made on-site at Redlands Farm, Stanwick. From time to time they produce seasonal cheeses to add to the varieties and they are always looking for new ones to add to their range. We now stocks four varieties:
COBBLERS CHOICE: A close textured, full bodied cheese in the style of "Cheddar". It has a vintage cream colour, and crumbles in the mouth. It is matured for a minimum of 150 days.
TOGGLERS: Vanilla white in colour, mild and mellow in taste with a satin appearance and creamy semi-hard texture. Matured for a minimum of 30 days.
HOBNAIL: A moist, hard cheese with blue/black veining which develops upon exposure to air. It has the distinctive "blue" cheese flavour with a hint of goat. Matured for a minimum of 60 days.
STANWICK BLUE: A rich, semi-soft blue veined cheese with a warm amber glow. The veining develops on exposure to air and it has a strong "blue cheese" flavour. It is matured for at least 60 days.
Did you know that if you are unwell or too infirm to get to the shop, we can bring your shopping to you? You can phone the shop during opening hours on 01604 328877 or email email@example.com. The shop is unable to take payments over the phone or online, so please have cash or a cheque ready.
We're now stocking these fabulous freshly baked quiches and muffins from yet another local supplier - The Old Parlour of Chapel Brampton. So tasty, you'll be eating them before you've left the shop!
