In response to the coronavirus crisis we've created Fettle, so that we can save our British sheep milk. Fettle is a British feta-style cheese made by Shepherds Purse cheeses. Fettle will be available from May 4th 2020, ready for the British Cheese Weekender 8th-10th May 2020 #britishcheeseweekender
- Tasting Notes
Due to the coronavirus crisis our sheep milk farmers may not survive. Early in the crisis our sheep milk farmer told us they only had two out of 22 customers left and we were one of them. They had tankers full of amazing milk with nowhere for it to go.
In order to be able to take more milk, we have rapidly developed this product, a new version of our famous Yorkshire Fettle.
It's the same delicious 100% northern sheep's milk feta-style cheese. It's incredible to cook with or to enjoy by itself. And by buying it, you are helping to keep a whole industry survive.
It will be available to leave us from May 4th! May the 4th be with you ewe!
Fettle is a distinctively creamy salad-style cheese combining a soft, slightly crumbly texture with a sweet piquant flavour.
