Smarts Traditional Gloucester Cheese
|Old Ley Court
|01452 750 225|
|Details: Old Ley Court is a traditional
working family farm enjoying a peaceful setting in the Severn Vale on
the edge of the Forest of Dean. For over 40 years it has been home to Douglas
and Diana Smart and their their third son Roderick.
Dairying is the main enterprise on this small farm although pigs is are also kept.
For the last 19 years high-quality Gloucester cheeses have been produced from
milk from our own cows, all of which are born and reared on the farm and individually
named. They receive no routine antibiotics apart from dry cow therapy. No cows
have been bought in since two Old Gloucester cows (Amy and Unis) bought in 1996.
The cheeses, which are made from very old recipes, are equally lovingly cared
for, from the mild smooth Single
Gloucester, which is made from the evening milk, which is skimmed and added
to the mornings whole milk, (and for which we have the PDO)
to the mature full flavoured whole milk Double
Gloucester, and the strong hard Harefield, which can be used as an excellent
substitute for parmesan.
Cheesemaking can be seen, for a small fee, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Booking
by phoning 0145 7502 is advisable.|
