Farleigh Wallop is one of the great masterpieces from the Evenlode Partnership – which consists of cheese officianado Juliet Harbutt and Alex James of (Blur fame)
Farleigh Wallop is a wonderful goat cheese that is made in complete 115g rounds. It tastes fresh and clean and it has the slightest taste of thyme from the sprig that is pressed into the top of it.
It is reasonably firm with a delicate and subtle flavour.
What’s it taste like? Farleigh Wallop is more subtle than its washed cousin, Little Wallop, with a gentler, less obtrusive aroma. A sprig of Thyme rounds off its refined rustique look. No wonder it was voted Best Goat Cheese at 2008 British Cheese Awards.
Where’s it from? It is produced by the masters at White Lake Cheeses in Bagborough, Somerset which is a short distance from the Glastonbury festival site.
