Cornish Gouda

from £3.90

Gouda is the Netherlands' great contribution to European cheese, and this sweet, mellow cheese has been famous since the 12th Century. Now a Dutch family has begun making it near Polruan in south-east Cornwall.

At six months old, this version is classed as 'semi-mature' - it has a little bit of a kick, but remains creamy. Generally this is suplied as wedges cut from very large cheeses; the exception is a 'mini' 900g version, which is a whole cheese.** Note: we also have an Extra Mature version of this, matured for two years.

Pasteurised, not vegetarian.

** Please note! If you want the 'whole 900g mini Gouda' we might need a bit of notice: try to allow us two weeks if you want one of these.

Cornish Gouda Co

The Spierings family moved from Holland to Cornwall in 1988 to set up a dairy farm near Polruan, in the south-east of the county. Producing high-quality milk, but frustrated by low milk prices, they decided to look into cheese production as a way of adding value to what the farm could produce. Drawing on their Dutch heritage was the obvious way to go.

They refurbished a shed on the farm to use for a dairy and maturing room, and son Giel travelled back to Holland to study cheese-making with other members of the family.  Cheese making in Cornwall began in earnest in 2012, with the first cheese going on sale later that year. The result is a unique addition to the English cheese scene.
