Celebrating Our Big Cheeses
Congratulations to the Hampshire Cheese Company, Lyburn Farmhouse Cheeses and Two Hoots Cheeses who have all been recognised in the prestigious World Cheese Awards, which have been bringing together cheesemakers, retailers, buyers, consumers and food commentators worldwide for over three decades.
Held in Italy this year for the first time, records were broken with a staggering 3,804 cheeses entered for the 2019 Awards.
Two Hoots Cheeses (based on the Hampshire border with Berkshire) picked up Super Gold and Golds for their Barkham Blue and Bronze for Baby Barkham. Hampshire Cheese Company (Herriard, in the heart of Hampshire) was received Silver for both Tunworth and Winslade cheeses. Lyburn Farmhouses Cheeses (on the Hampshire border with Wiltshire) was awarded Silver for Stoney Cross and Bronze for Lyburn Lightly Oak Smoked.
Between them you can put together an award-winning local cheeseboard that includes soft, semi-soft, blue and smoked cheeses.
