Supplied by: The Courtyard Dairy | Delivery Details

One of Britain’s most outstanding goats’ milk cheeses.  At The Courtyard Dairy, Dorstone is sold at only three weeks old – at that stage Dorstone still has a mousse-like texture, a lemony-fresh flavour and just a hint of goat.
Charlie Westhead is one of the finest cheese makers in the UK.  Daily they collect goats milk from Gloucestershire to make Dorstone (and Ragstone), which are based on classic French recipes. This involves pre-draining the long-set curd (which helps give it it's light, fluffy texture) and lightly ashing the cheese to produce a dark grey rind.

At The Courtyard Dairy the Dorstone cheese is further dried and then aged for only three weeks so it remains fresh and light.

Dorstone is named after the local Neolithic settlement at Dorstone Hill.

Charlie Westhead started making cheese over 20 years ago in Central London, before moving out to Sevenoaks (next to the Ragstone ridge from which another of their cheeses takes its name).  Several years ago they settled in Herefordshire and built a brand new creamery.  Their new creamery is extremely eco-friendly – all their power comes from solar panels, wind turbines and wood burners.  The wastewater is also disposed of and filtered through their own wetland system.

This product will have two weeks shelf life from the date of delivery.

The Courtyard Dairy

Award wining purveyors of world cheeses, their extensive range have been aged to perfection, then hand-cut at the shop. You might occasionally find the same cheese available elsewhere, but we doubt they will taste as good – cheeses matured by The Courtyard Dairy taste simply amazing
