a new generation of Orkney farmhouse cheese

Cheese has always been enjoyed in our family – we’ve been making, sharing, eating and celebrating this incredible food in various forms for generations. You could say it’s in our blood – not literally of course… well possibly a bit!

When my granny from Westray introduced me to the process of cheesemaking as teenager, I hoped I would one day produce a version of my own. Granny was the original inspiration, but my foodie family and friends are the driving force – they encouraged me to develop something new that builds on this heritage, yet is versatile enough to suit modern tastes and recipes.

So, after years of testing and tasting, here it is – Burnside, Orkney’s newest handmade cheese! I hope you gather together with family and friends and enjoy sharing it as much as we do…
