Teifi Seaweed Cheese is based on Teifi Natural cheese with locally harvested Laver seaweed that is added during the cheesemaking process. Laver seaweed  is a popular ingredient in Welsh cuisine and adds a mild saltiness, complimenting the natural  cheese.

Teifi Natural cheese is a Gouda-style cheese with a dense, smooth and creamy texture. Its mellow, slightly sweet flavour is very versatile.

Seaweed contains lots of nutrients including iodine and essential minerals.

Great in all types of cooking, on sandwiches or with crackers or just as a cheeky chunk of pure indulgence!

The wedges are sliced individually so may differ a little in size but each wedge will weigh a minimum of 180g

Each wedge is vacuum packed to seal  the fresh and lovely cheese and will have a shelf life of approximately 3-4 months, unopened and refrigerated.

Allergen Info - May contain Molluscs or Crustaceans. Contains Milk.

Teifi Cheese : In 1981 John, Patrice and Paula came to Wales from their native Holland with dreams of setting up a centre for learning organic farming and self-sufficiency. They bought Glynhynod Farm (meaning Remarkable Valley in Welsh) and set to work realising their vision. Soon after arriving at the farm Patrice, who trained as a cheesemaker in Holland, started making wonderful raw milk cheese. Based on a 500 year old Gouda recipe, it is the very same cheese that they make today and is named after the nearby river Teifi, a tributary of which runs through the farm. 

Having started in 1982 they are now the longest established artisan cheesemaker in Wales.

Today the farm and family businesses are run by John and Patrice’s two sons; John-James and Robert, who are carrying on their parents’ vision for the farm and Caws Teifi Cheese.

 Caws Teifi Cheese is the most highly awarded artisan cheesemakers in Britain.

Their cheeses have won countless first prizes and gold medals at The Royal Welsh Show, The Nantwich Show, The British Cheese Awards and The World Cheese Awards.

No one knows precisely when people in West Wales first started eating laver, some say it was first introduced as a survival food by the Vikings, while others say it goes back to the very first inhabitants of Wales. I am a betting man so I like to bet that it was the first coastal inhabitants, and I would to take a bow to the very first man or women who took that bold step into the unknown world of laver seaweed and put it on their plate....
