Alham Wood Cheeses
Frances Wood and the team at Alham Wood produce a wide variety of handmade cheeses, including their own variations of Ricotta, Cheddar, Caerphily and Mozzarella, as well as some of Frances' own creations, many of them based on traditional Romanian recipes. They also have fresh unpasteurised milk, buffalo meat and delicious thick yoghurt available.
This Somerset organic farm has reared dairy cows for many generations, but took the unusual step of introducing water buffalo onto the farm in the late 1990s (an unusual sight in the West Country!) and they haven't looked back since. The farm now, in addition to attending farmers' markets, sells its handmade cheeses to many London restaurants.
