Jannei Lidsdale is a semi-hard mature goat cheese made in summer months with summer milk. The cheddar styled cheese is hand made in a 3 kilo wheel and can develop very rich flavour if left to mature over 12 months. It can also be milder and tastier at 6 months old. It is usually about 8 to 12 months when sold.
We have been developing the Lidsdale every year from its conception. It”s actually the first cheese that Neil started on his cheese making journey 17 years ago. Serve Lidsdale at room temperature by taking out and arranging your platter one hour before serving. Once when the flavour was very robust we called it the Hill Billie Goat and as such it won a Silver in 2010. With this cheese you can have a complete platter of Jannei cheeses.
Sold in small vacuum sealed wedges 150gm to 200gm with a 8 week best before date.

Eugene Khoo –
This is another great cheese from Jannei. In response to the much-loved grana padano, Jannei has come out with a viable contender. Highlights of grass and subtle almonds, this is something to eat on its own or whenever you need a harder cheese for culinary application. It will not be unreasonable to negotiate for a whole wheel of cheese to be aged longer if these are your requirements, call Jannei and see. Farm visit 4 Mar 2016, Reviewed 6 Mar 2016.
