Norton & Yarrow Cheese
Norton and Yarrow Cheese make award winning artisan goats' cheese. We are based at the Earth Trust Farm near Shillingford in South Oxfordshire.
We make two cheeses. Our first cheese, Sinodun Hill, is an aged lactic goats cheese pyramid based on a traditional French recipe. It is made using the traditional method of slow lactic coagulation and is then matured for up to 21 days to develop the flavour and texture. The rennet is vegetarian - derived from the cardoon thistle. The result is a flavoursome cheese with a light nutty edge and a light mousse-like texture.
Our second cheese, Brightwell Ash, was launched in spring 2019 and is a ripened goats cheese disc with an ash based natural rind. It has a silky texture and particularly sumptuous flavour with hazelnut and citrus notes. It is made with traditional animal rennet. The rind develops natural moulds on the ash base which add greatly to the flavour and character of the cheese and vary seasonally.
We have our own herd of pedigree Anglo Nubian goats - the 'Jersey Cow' of the goat world.
