Thelma Caerffili is named after Thelma Adams, who led the revival of Welsh artisan cheese production with her husband Gwynfor in the mid-1980s in response to the introduction of milk quotas. Today Carmarthenshire-based Caws Cenarth is run by Thelma and Gwynfor’s son Carwyn. Organic Thelma Caerffili is a more mature version of their traditional Caerffili; it has a loose and slightly crumbly texture with a delicate lemony flavour – an essential cheeseboard pick.

 Named after the founder of Caws Cenarth, Thelma Adams who began producing this cheese in the 1980’s from a much older family recipe. Its natural mould rind is mottled grey-white in colour and itself has an earthy, mineral flavour. Caerffili is a young fresh cheese and is best enjoyed young and fresh to appreciate the creamy, lemony flavours.

A classic Regional cheese to place on the cheese board. A versatile cheese for both commercial and family kitchen recipes. Makes a superb soufflé.
