Jannei Lidsdale is a semi-hard mature goat cheese made in summer months with summer milk. Although styled on a cheddar recipe this cheese is far from it. It is a hand made 3 kilo ripened wheel of cheese. It can develop very rich flavour with sweet parmesan notes. If left to mature over 12 months to two years it gets very rich and intense flavours. It can also be milder when young and tasty at 6 – 8 months old. It is usually about 8 to 12 months when sold.

We have developed the Lidsdale every year from its conception. It’s actually the first cheese that Neil started on his cheese making journey 28 years ago. Its the sort of cheese you tramp over the Mountain to find in France but you find Neil at his Jannei farm instead, just outside Lithgow! 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 175gm with a 8 week best before date.

  1. 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.
