Hard cheese

Cwmglyn Cheese's farmhouse cheese

Loved cows produce the best cheese

Cwmglyn Cheese Cwmglyn Cheese's Biddy Fraser-Davies metamorphosis into cheesemaker is a wonderfully inspirational story and worth seeking out from past Country Calendar shows on TVOne.

Biddy makes her cheese by hand using traditional organic methods with equipment that’s often handmade on her farm. This is about the cheese, but it’s also about the passion that comes from the person behind the cheesemaking.

Cwmglyn (pronounced coom-glin) cheeses are each produced from Jersey cows that are individually named and organically farmed in the Tararua Ranges. There’s Molly, Sally, Emily, Ivy and Iris and Isobel. Now that’s a small farm and cows that can count themselves among the very lucky ones. They are loved and respected and live a stress free life.

The List picked up some of Cwmglyn’s farmhouse cheese in Masterton and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Biddy’s also an accomplished enamalist and runs courses not only cheesemaking, but also enamel making. Her husband shows the Middleton Model Railway to the admiring tourists as they pass through.

Biddy deserves to be winning the awards she is from her hard cheeses.
