Cheese is a recent addition to the roster for the Erbs. They started making Landaff in 2008 after Doug apprenticed at Westcombe Farms in Somerset, England, making Caerphilly according to Chris Duckett’s original recipe. Landaff is modeled after that Welsh classic but is a beast of its own – like Caerphilly, it is earthy and delicious but Landaff generally tends to be creamier in texture.
One of the cheeses we get from Neal’s Yard Dairy in London is named for the town of Caerphilly because that’s where most of the wheels (made in the surrounding countryside) were sold. The delicious Caerphilly cheese we sell in our store today is made at Gorwydd Farm in the town of Llanddewi Brefi in Ceredigion.
