The family has been involved in dairy farming here for nearly a century and the cows, all known by name, are ‘the real stars of the Kedar show.’ These cattle were bred to live in the mountains and valleys of Switzerland so I am sure they equally enjoy the beautiful landscapes of Dumfriesshire!
Their cheese melts with ease and is a great ingredient in dishes with a subtle flavour and silky texture. Whether torn or sliced it is a great addition to any meal.
