Lyburn Farmhouse Cheese
Old Winchester Cheese
Also known as Old Smales, Old Winchester is an older version of Winchester, on a previous page. This is now a much dryer harder and crystalline cheese, becoming more reminiscent of an old gouda with a distinctive nuttiness in flavour, however it is a product of evolution and need. Because Old Winchester is made with a vegetarian rennet, on a number of occasions the cheese is being sold, and used as a vegetarian replacement for a hard Italian cheese, and yet can still be used as a table cheese, it has that bit more versatility.
In A Pickle Food Company
In a Pickle was started in 2011 by Steph Anderson working alone in her home kitchen using her own unique recipes. Today the business has grown significantly and Steph supplies food retailers, shops and restaurants throughout the UK and into Europe.

The Fine Cheese Company

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan British cheeses, most of which are unpasteurised and all of which are traditionally made. The Fine Cheese Co. has been owned and run from the beginning by Ann-Marie Dyas. A judge at both the British and World Cheese Awards, Ann-Marie was committed to the survival of traditional cheese-making, and to introducing farmhouse cheeses to as wide a public as possible.
