“The Stewart family has farmed at Falside for over 50 years and the dairy has always been central to the business. As nobody else in Fife is making cheese from their own milk on farm; there seemed to be public demand for, and interest in, locally produced food; and last, but not least, we love cheese – in January 2008, our first cheese was born.”
Award-winning ‘Anster’ cheese is hand-made on the farm – to a traditional recipe – by Jane Stewart, using unpasteurized milk from her husband Robert’s herd of home-bred Holstein Friesian cows. This new cheese is fresh and dry, with an almost crumbly texture that dissolves in the mouth to leave a full-flavoured finish. Her other fine cheeses include Red Anster and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar.
Jane’s Anster and Scottish Farmhouse Cheese is on Slow Food’s Ark of Taste.
