Llangloffan - Red Farmhouse Cheese

A farmhouse style cheese with a naturally developed rind. Llangloffan was the original artisan cheese created in West Wales by Leon Downey at his farm in Pembrokeshire in the 1970’s. This tradition is carried on today by Carmarthenshire Cheese who continue its manufacture after Leon’s retirement using his original recipes.

Llangloffan - Red Farmhouse Cheese

The Taste

Firm and yet smooth in texture but with slight crumbliness when young. Fresh lactic flavours and slight citrous notes combined with creaminess when young developing into more robust flavours as the cheese matures.

Recipe Suggestion

The ideal cheese for the ploughmans platter! – crusty bread and celery and a flavour some beer compliment this ideally.

Grate over pasta or use to create a delicious cheese sauce. Great as your hard cheese selection on your cheeseboard.

Interesting Fact
