Moyden's hand made cheeses are made using traditional cheese making techniques which have been tried and tested by countless generations of farmhouse and specialist cheese makers. We make a range of award winning artisan cheeses using the finest raw milk obtained from well kept and contented cows that graze the traditional pastures that are unique to Shropshire. These cheeses are the essence of Shropshire, provenance preserved.
Newport cheese is named after the Shropshire market town, in the north of the county. Matured for 3 to 4 months Newport cheese has a unique flavour. The resulting cheese is pale tangerine in colour, Newport has a mellow buttery taste and flakey texture with a subtle aromatic sweetness.
Our award winning Newport cheese is oak smoked creating Newport 1665, which is named after the year of the great fire of Newport. The smooth buttery texture tastes light mellow and sweet. The whole wheel is cold smoked over oak chips at Bings Heath Smokery resulting in a light oak smoked flavour not detracting from the mellow sweet taste of the original Newport cheese.
