Hafod (pronounced Havod) is an unpasteurised Cheddar made by hand at Holden Farm Dairy on Bwlchwernen Fawr, Wales’ longest certified organic dairy farm.
Sharp but subtle, Hafod has a rich texture and a complex and earthy flavour – perfect for adding to Welsh rarebit or eating with a slice of apple. The Hafod recipe was developed by Sam and Rachel Holden in 2005 after they were inspired by a recipe from Dora Saker’s 1917 book ‘Practical Cheddar Cheese-making’. The 75 Ayrshire cows on the farm produce a milk that’s perfect for high quality cheesemaking due to its rich and buttery texture.
We’re very proud to be working closely with fifteen of the best artisan cheese makers in Wales. We stock over 60 varieties of Welsh cheese in total, sourced from all corners of the country. Explore our producers page to find out more.Our Producers
