Say cheese!

Created on 19/10/2021 @ 11:10


Trefaldwyn Cheese from Montgomery has scooped two major awards from the Artisan Cheese Awards and the Great Taste Awards 2021.

Trefaldwyn Cheese, the producer of Trefaldwyn Blue from Montgomery, won a bronze from the Artisan Cheese Awards held at Melton Mowbray, and a coveted two-star award by Great Taste, the largest and most trusted food and drink awards.

Trefaldwyn Blue will now display the unmistakable black and gold logo, a stamp of excellence that is recognised by retailers and consumers alike.

Trefaldwyn Blue is made by cheese maker, Clare Jones, entirely by hand in very small batches. She was previously a local primary school teacher and started making Trefaldwyn Blue in 2019.                               

“Making my cheese is quite complicated and also physically hard work but I love the whole process,” she said.

“What makes me really happy though is the amazing feedback I receive from my customers, the deli’s, hotels and restaurants and also their customers and that means so much to me.

“I now receive messages from total strangers telling me how much they love Trefaldwyn Blue, I just never expected that.

“I just can’t tell you how delighted I am to win these awards, when I heard that I had been awarded a Great Taste Award, I literally had tears of joy rolling down my face.”

The Great Taste judges described Trefaldwyn blue as “a really fine looking cheese” and its growing demand has seen Clare double production in recent months. 

Trefaldwyn Blue is available from The Castle Kitchen and Spar in Montgomery, Derwen Farm Shop in Guilsfield, The Corner Deli in Clun, Cultivate in Newtown, Blasau Deli in Machynlleth, Camlan Farm Shop in Derwenlas, as well as further afield in the Mousetrap in Ludlow, Leominster and Hereford, The Cheese Shop and Cheerbrooks farm shop in Nantwich, Marches Deli in Abergavenny and The Little Cheesemonger in Rhuddlan & Prestatyn.
