Extra Mature Cornish Gouda is hand made by the Cornish Gouda Company who moved from the Netherlands in 1998 to start dairy farming. However due to many years of poor milk prices, the family decided to sell. When youngest son, Giel came home from college and saw the ‘For Sale’ sign on the gate he decided he would make the business viable by diversifying the farm through the production of cheese.
Extra Mature Cornish Gouda is produced using only the milk from the family’s pedigree herd, which are born, reared and fed on the farm. Aged for 18months + this cheese is much drier than most Goudas but has an incredible rich flavour with very large crystals which give it an amazing crunch. The cheese is beautifully rich and nutty with a firm texture. This is a traditional Gouda style cheese with classic characteristics but with a distinctively modern twist.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
