Caerfai is a diverse family farm on the edge of St Davids in Pembrokeshire, the UK’s smallest city. The farm is exceptional and pioneering in many different ways. It is run on 100% self-generated renewable energy, and currently has a mixture of solar, geo-thermal, bio-gas and wind power on site. Farmer Wyn Evans first started building his own green-energy systems well over 40 years ago, and has become something of an expert over the years. That pioneering spirit also extends to the way they run their dairy herd and make their cheese. They have been farming organically since 1991, letting their cattle graze on their 180 acres of chemical-free grassland right on the Pembrokeshire coast.
Caerfai make two varieties of organic, unpasteurised cheese: a Cheddar and a Caerffili. The Cheddar is made on the farm in traditional cloth-bound truckles and matured for a minimum of 5 months. The Caerffili is a much younger, fresher cheese, which is generally sold at between 1 and 2 months.
