Single Gloucester

GREYSTONES Single Gloucester is not just any old cheese: each creamy slice is an edible ambassador for the work being carried out to protect one of Gloucestershire’s most historic and wildlife-significant areas of farmland.

The organic milk from which the cheese is made comes from animals grazed at the Greystones Farm Nature Reserve in Bourton-on-the-Water for part of the year.

This site is historically important having been farmed and populated since the Neolithic period; recent geophysical surveys of the area – also known as the Salmonsbury Iron Age fortified town – have discovered ditches characteristic of a causewayed enclosure dating back more than 5,000 years.

At the same time, the farm on the banks of the River Eye contains some of Britain’s last remaining wild flower and grass-rich hay meadows, which support a vast range of insects and butterflies and other wildlife.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
