Supplied by Andy Swinscoe, The Courtyard Dairy – Cheesemonger of the Year – World Cheese Awards.
The Courtyard Dairy stocks and supplies a carefully chosen range of unusual and exquisite farmhouse cheeses, selected direct from individual farms, and then only if the cheese is superior in quality and taste. No compromises.
For the best depth of flavour, these specialist cheeses are still made by hand on the farm, with most farmers using their own high-quality unpasteurised milk from a single herd of animals. Many of these farmers have less than 70 cows (the smallest producer has just 7 goats!).
The Courtyard Dairy’s cheeses are among the finest to be found anywhere in the world.
Fellstone -Unpasteurised Cow’s Milk
This is farmhouse Wensleydale how it used to be, and it’s still being developed – Fellstone is one to watch.
Made by Tom and Clare Noblet at Whin Yeats Farm, Hutton Roof, near Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria, England.
Tom and Clare Noblet started to make cheese in 2015 on their dairy farm on the edge of the Lake District. Based on a traditional old ‘Dales’ recipe of the north of England, Fellstone is aged for three months by which time it has the fresh lemony-lactic flavours of a good Wensleydale, with a supple, firmer texture.
