WS: What kinds of cheeses are made here?
JS: We make three cheeses; the Anster, which is fresh and dry, with an almost crumbly texture; the Red Anster which contains locally-grown fresh garlic and herbs; the St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar, which is nine months matured.
WS: Do you eat a lot of cheese?
JS: We do eat a fair bit here, but not as much as you'd think! We probably eat a normal amount to the rest of the country.
WS: Tell us about all the goings-on at the Farmhouse?
JS: Well, our viewing gallery allows you to really see how the cheese is made, so we find that visitors really spend a lot of time watching the processes (kids love it too and we have school groups coming in as well). You can then try out some cheese in the coffee shop, along with our locally-sourced menu and gift shop. We are strong supporters of local produce, like our salmon,
chutneys, oat cakes and honeys and we sell other local cheeses along with our own.
