- Traditional Ayrshire Dunlop – native cheese to area hence the name Dunlop. It is like cheddar but moister – made with Ayrshire cows milk. Depending how long it is matured, it comes in mild, mature and smoked….
- Bonnet – hard goats’ milk cheese matured for several months.
Soft cheeses …
- Aiket – Camembert style soft cows’ milk cheese covered with a bloomy white rind.
- Glazert – Bloomy white mould ripened soft goats’ milk cheese.
- Clerkland Crowdie – A soft fresh cows’ milk cheese. Fresh as in not ripened so it is ready to eat as soon as it is made. This is an excellent example of traditional farmhouse crowdie and the only one in Scotland made with Ayrshire cows. They also do this cheese from goats milk but it doesn’t have a name so is sold as goat curd.
- Paddy’s Milestone & Ailsa Craig – These are made from cows’ milk and goats’ milk respectively. They are named after the famous rock in the Firth of Clyde because they resemble the shape of Ailsa Craig.
- Some cheeses may be unpasteurised so please check range at time of purchase
