Like many of us, Dalewood Fromage’s Rob Visser and his team found that they had a bit more time on their hands during lockdown. Unlike many of us, they put that time to good use! The result is the addition of a whole new range of dairy products to their range.
Visitors to the Cheesery Shop on the farm can now also stock up on buttermilk, cream and crème fraiche for their cooking or baking projects. While there they might as well pick up some of the estate’s hand-made, lightly-salted butter and the full-cream stirred Jersey yoghurt. The latter is entirely free of additives, preservatives, thickeners, stabilisers, emulsifiers, milk powder and sugar making it as natural and healthy as can be. For your home-made pizzas and salad the full-cream Feta is just the ticket!
Dalewood’s unique recipe was formulated by Rob Visser who studied Dairy Technology at Elsenburg College. After years of experimenting, time in France sniffing out traditional cheese making secrets and countless cheese tastings Dalewood Cheese was launched in 2000.
Dalewood’s single Jersey herd grazes each day on bio-dynamically grown pastures surrounded by vineyards. Because of its focus on regenerative farming Dalewood is able to produce all-natural products with no preservatives, colourants or flavourants and suitable for vegetarians.
