A delicious soft sheep milk cheese with a bloomy white coat. Little Sussex is actually a matured plain Sussex Slipcote cheese. It has a mild delicate flavour and a fluffy texture when young, but becomes stronger and more flavoursome as it ages.
Ingredients: organic pasteurised cow's milk, salt, vegetarian rennet.
The High Weald Dairy is on Tremains Farm at Haywards Heath, West Sussex. In the late 1980s Mark Hardy, and his parents Guy and Audrey, established a flock of 150 British Friesland sheep for milking at their small family farm. Mark and his wife Sarah later added dairy cows and goats, and now make a range of artisan organic cheeses.
