An organic, pasteurised, vegetarian award-winning washed-rind cheese made with Park Farm's Wyfe of Bath curds which are pressed and then washed in cider every other day for four weeks (hence the name, Merry Wyfe!). The cider is made by Graham Padfield from organic apples harvested on the farm. This cheese has a distinctive pungent orange (edible) rind and a rich, creamy texture typical of Park Farm's cheeses.
The cheesemakers at Park Farm live by the old farming saying 'Look after your cows and your cows will look after you'. They take a traditional approach both to how they raise and graze their small herd of 160 mainly Holstein Friesian cows and to their artisan, handmade, hands-on cheesemaking. They are entirely organic and are registered with Organic Farmers and Growers, so that means no fungicides, pesticides or artificial fertilisers are used on their land.
