Caws Cenarth Cheese is a family run business established over 25 years. The farm Glyneithinog is situated in the lovely and lush cych valley which is within 3 miles of the famous salmon leap on the river Teifi at Cenarth falls.
Commercial cheesemaking began in 1987 after the introduction of milk quotas where strict European directives prevented the sale of surplus milk . From adversity came opportunity and Thelma began making Caerffili cheese she was once taught by her parents. Once word got about demand grew and it wasn’t long before the hand made Caerffilis were seen on the shelves of top stores in London.
Today we produce a large range of cheeses which includes Perl Wen a soft white rinded cheese not too dissimilar to a brie . Perl Las a distinctively different blue cheese which is now exported to over five different countries.
Our biggest accolade came when Golden Cenarth , a wash rinded cheese won the supreme champion award at the British Cheese Awards in 2010. Golden Cenarth come in a wooden box and although delicious when cold is even better when baked in the oven and served as a starter with various breads etc.
Along with our original Caerffili we have a Smoked Caerffili version and a Garlic and Herb version. Noted for being quite innovative we also have found flair in developing some great flavour added cheeses namely Tomi Twyn (with sundried tomato and chilli) , Cennin Cenarth (leek and white wine) Brandi Braf (Brandi and Apricot) .
Soon to be launched is our newest cheese which is similar in style to a alpine cheese together with a cheddar. Will keep you posted.
You can watch the cheese being made from our viewing gallery and museum and taste the cheese on offer, free of charge at our farm shop. A warm welcome awaits you.
