The Real Cheese

From low-fat and salty, to full flavoured and creamy, Fairview Cheese is a veritable smorgasbord of crafted delights. 

The Fairview Cheesery produces a range of over 50 cow’s milk and goat’s milk artisanal cheeses, including white mould, blue mould, feta and cream cheese styles. To ensure there is something for everyone, we strive to offer a range of both traditional cream cheeses such as Brie and Camembert, while our winning innovations such as our White and Blue Rock cheeses help place us ahead of the herd. All our cheeses are made with non-animal rennet and are certified Halaal and Kosher. All that’s left for you to do it taste and enjoy!

Selection

fairview-camembert
Traditional Camembert

A traditional recipe is used to produce this Camembert. The firm texture at beginning of shelf life will change to a soft and bulging texture towards end of shelf life. The flavour intensifies with age to a characteristic earthy, mushroom aroma.

fairview-vinter-brie
Vinter’s Brie

A traditional full flavoured, soft white mould cheese with a creamy ‘mushroom’ flavour.

fairview-brie
Traditional Brie

A traditional recipe, full flavoured, soft white mould cheese with a creamy ‘mushroom’ flavour. This Brie will ripen from the outside towards the centre. Enzymes produced by the white mould interact with the cheese proteins to give the characteristic soft texture and a favour that will intensify with ripening. This is an ideal Brie for cheese boards and cooking.

fairview-roydon-camembert
Roydon Camembert

The Fairview’s flagship cheese, Roydon Camembert is crafted using a secret, traditional recipe and is named in honour of one of Fairview’s earlier cheesemakers. It is produced in the traditional French method, with a dash of our goats’ milk to give farmhouse flavour and characteristics.

fairview-blue-rock
Blue Rock

A full fat blue veined Roquefort-style cheese with a rich flavour and a firm yet creamy texture. A lengthy four- to six-month maturation ensures that the enzymes produced by the mould interact with the fats and proteins in the cheese to create the characteristic taste and flavour.

fairview-blue-tower
Blue Tower

A full fat blue veined Gorgonzola style cheese with a mild avour and rich creamy texture. Blue Tower is made with more cream than our famous Blue Rock, resulting in a rich texture. It also has a slightly higher moisture content, making it a bit softer and more decadent.

“My father and I had an excellent book on cheese production, however it was all in French which neither of us understood! Our greatest achievement in those first months was that we managed to tick off every cheese fault that the book specified.”
