About Tunworth Cheese
WEIGHT 250 grams
Tunworth has a long lasting sweet , nutty flavour and a creamy texture with a thin wrinkled rind. Tunworth Cheese is made by hand in small batches in our purpose built creamery with pasteurised whole cows milk.
First we add specific starter cultures to the warm milk. The animal rennet is added and the curd begins to set. After several hours we cut the curds into one inch cubes and place them gently into cheese moulds.
The cheeses drain overnight and are dry salted the next day. From the production room they are placed on racks and taken into the ripening room where they grow their white coats.
The cheeses are then wrapped and boxed in special poplar boxes and placed into a maturing room for several weeks before being despatched to our wholesale and retail customers.
Hampshire Cheeses is audited against the Salsa + SCA standard annually. See www.salsafood.co.uk. This includes having a HACCP system in place for the cheese we produce.
We continuously assess our quality management system to ensure we are complying with current legislation.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the above.
