We are back in production and our team is back in the dairy!
We took the tough decision back in March to stop making cheese after the closure of restaurants and cancellation of key sporting and social events meant that a major part of our customer base disappeared over night.
We had to look at ways in which we could sell our cheese through other avenues, which meant that we very quickly had to learn how to get an online shop up and running.
Everyone who has purchased or promoted our Pitchfork Cheddar and Gorwydd Caerphilly has helped us get back up and running again, it really is entirely down to the fantastic support we have received from all of our customers that has meant we can begin production again and prepare for the future.
A very big THANK YOU from the whole team at Trethowan Brothers.
We will keep you updated with events in The Dairy and will be sharing tips on cheese care, tasting notes, recipes and anything cheese related over the coming months.
We have already expanded our online shop and you can now buy our Pitchfork Cheddar and Gorwydd Caerphilly in a range of sizes and weights from our website.
We will also be expanding our shop range over the coming weeks. Watch this space for news on some new products and great new partnerships with other artisan cheese-makers and in the meantime, keep on eating and helping to save our Great British Cheese!
Project name: New Cheddar
The aim of this project has been to start cheddar production at Trethowan's Dairy. The funding has supported the purchase of all new equipment required to produce cheddar, as well the design and build of a chilled cheddar store adjacent to the current dairy. It is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
