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.
