About

Ragstone goats' cheese comes in a log shape, reminiscent of the reknowned French cheese Sainte Maure, but the flavour and texture are quite different. The flavour of Ragstone is pronounced, and even strong dependent on the maturity of this artisan cheese. The texture of Ragstone cheese can be firm but softens as it ages.

Made by Charlie Westhead from Neal's Yard Creamery which moved from the South East in1996 to the beautiful location on Dorstone Hill, overlooking the river Wye in Herefordshire.Their small-scale approach to cheese making means that they retain control not only of the cheese production, but also of their power and heating needs. This is not something they undertake as a publicity exercise - it is at the core of everything they do, both at home and in business. The electricity is sourced from ethical suppliers, and as much as possible is generated on-site by a windmill. Heating requirements are amply handled with a customised furnace, burning locally sourced wood.
