Learn more about Farmhouse cheese with ‘Cheese Chats’.

the-courtyard-dairyGood Afternoon Cheesy1’s,

Today I bring you a new project from The Courtyard Dairy called ‘Cheese Chats’. Andy Swinscoe says “In our quest to increase public understanding and knowledge of farmhouse cheese and traditional farming, The Courtyard Dairy has begun recording a series of in-depth video interviews that we are calling ‘cheese-chats’.  The series features prominent cheese-makers and cheesemongers chatting in depth  about issues and topics relevant to the industry, exploring in depth what they feel about traditional cheese-making, sustainable farming and terroir, and including some behind-the-scenes exclusives.” This is brilliant way of passing the information and knowledge that the cheese makers & mongers have for their product on to the consumer/ wider audience.

The first episode is Graham Kirkham talking about what tradition means to him and for his farm.  Kirkhams have been making their eponymous Lancashire cheese at Beesley Farm near Goosnargh for over forty years.

I hope you enjoy the posting of these videos and I truly enjoyed them when I watched them.
