Y Cwt Caws
For supremely good goats’ milk cheese, there is no need to look to France: thanks to Y Cwt Caws, Wales is producing some truly exceptional goats’ cheeses of its own.
A respected, family-run artisan cheesemaking business based on the family farm at Cors yr Odyn, Dulas, Anglesey, Y Cwt Caws has carved out a niche in recent years with its distinctly fresh, clean-tasting cheeses. All of them are produced entirely by hand, using traditional methods and milk from their mixed herd of Saanans, Toggenburgs and Alpine goats. ‘Ffetys’, a salad style cheese, won gold at the True Taste of Wales 2008/09 awards, while their Môn Wen Camembert won two gold stars in the Great Taste Awards. Other products include a hard cheese and versatile soft cheese balls.
