A traditional farmhouse cheese originally produced in the South Wales town of the same name. Being close to the great mining towns of South Wales the young cheese was a favorite amongst mining communities as its shallow height and tough coat made it easy to eat with dirty hands down in the mines. Its salty, moist curd helped to replace the minerals lost during the hours spent laboring underground. Its more mature variant – often kept for up to a year - forms a tough rind and gradually becomes harder in texture and stronger in taste. This cheese tends to be young, fresh and clean tasting with a pleasant tang. Our English friends tell us that our Caerphilly reminds them of home. Net weight 1/3 pound.
