Hafod Cheddar Hard Cheese
Made using methods dating back to 1917, Hafod is a rich, layered cheese from Ceredigion in Wales.
A cow’s milk cheddar, it has a rich taste that’s complex, buttery and nutty.
Each Hafod is made entirely by hand at Wales’ longest certified organic dairy farm using high-quality milk from the farm’s Ayrshire cows.
Out of stock
Rich and typically sweeter than most cheddars, Hafod an occasional blue vein running through it thanks to its natural production methods. It’s both sharp and supple, and gets its rich and buttery texture from the high-quality cow’s milk that’s perfect for a nutty cheddar.
As Hafod is generally less acidic than many cheddars you’ll taste, it can pair well with a tawny port. Try Vista Alegre Fine Tawny Port, which is delicate with both spicy and fruity aromas.
About the producer
Hafod is handmade at Holden Farm Dairy in Ceredigion, Wales using methods inspired by a recipe from Dora Saker’s 1917 book ‘Practical Cheddar Cheese-making’. The dairy, Wales’ longest certified organic dairy farm, uses milk from its own 75 Ayrshire cows to create this Hafod using a natural rind recipe developed in 2005.
How to enjoy
Hafod makes a brilliant Welsh rarebit thanks to its rich but earthy flavours. Sharp and supple, you’ll also find it goes well with fruits, such as apple, on your cheeseboard after dinner, washed down with a glass of port.
