Iona will be doing a cheese tasting this Saturday, 5th Feb at Fodder, in Harrogate, from 11am to 3pm. We will be showcasing our new matured Goat cheese, our new matured Wensleydale, both are natural rinded cheeses that have gently matured over 4 months in their traditional cloth bandages, gaining a nice thin rind. We will also be releasing our new Yorkshire Gouda to the world, and what better place to do this than at Fodder.
I should mention that we will be doing our cheese tasting alongside Jenny, our lovely goat milk man, Jonathan’s equally lovely wife. So if you would like to taste some of Hackfall Goat’s milk (which is nothing like the stuff you get in the supermarkets), please come along and try it. I feel sure that you will be pleasantly surprised.
