A family of cheeses, made by the Smale family at Landford in Wiltshire. Milk from their own herd of cows is the base, and cheeses centre around Lyburn Gold, which resembles Gouda in style. This is lightly pressed, and matured for about 14 weeks. There are various flavoured versions (such as 'Garlic & Nettle' and 'Cumin'), plus a smoked version. They also make a semi-hard washed curd called Winchester which is also made in an 'Aged' version. For more information see www.lyburncheese.co.uk (http://www.lyburncheese.co.uk/)
