Gorwydd Caerphilly is an artisan, raw milk, naturally rinded Caerphilly cheese, originally made by brothers and business partners Todd & Maugan Trethowan on their farm near Llanddewi Brefi in the Teifi Valley, but now made by Maugan and his wife Kim Trethowan in Somerset. In search of the perfect milk the family moved production of the cheese from Wales to north Somerset in 2014 where they were able to invest in a new dairy to meet their specific needs.

Todd learnt the original recipe for Caerphilly from a third generation cheese maker in Somerset. Despite being consider a Welsh cheese the recipe for Gorwydd Caerphilly was originally used in Somerset in the early part of the 20th century.

Following a traditional recipe and working the curds by hand, the cheeses are usually matured for a minimum of three to four months (which is longer than most caerphillys’) to give a wonderfully deep flavour that is yet still fresh and clean tasting with slight citrus notes, combined with a surprisingly creamy, moist texture. This excellent cheese has deservedly won a number of prestigious cheese awards

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!
