Product description

Goat’s milk blue cheeses are something of a rarity in the UK, so Harbourne Blue is truly special. Made by hand here in Devon, the cheese takes around 10 weeks to mature, developing a delicate sweetness and a crumbly texture. Made with pasteurised milk, it is supplied wrapped in waxed paper.

Origins

Harbourne Blue is one of three cheeses made by Ben Harris and his team at Ticklemore Dairy in Devon. The Dairy was set up over thirty years ago by Robin Congdon to make blue cheeses using similar techniques to Roquefort. Harbourne follows the same recipe, but uses goat’s milk, which gives it a style entirely of its own.

Ticklemore Dairy does not produce its own goat’s milk; instead, it is bought in from local goat farmers Sue and Will Thomson-Coon of Button Farm in Buckfast, on the edge of Dartmoor. The milk is pasteurised and the cultures are added to it, enabling a quick-set curd. The cheese is then cold matured at around 5°C, so the flavours and the blue develop slowly - a method traditionally used in Roquefort maturation. Sometimes the blue mould can develop a slight peppery spice, a contrast against the clean paste.
