Suffolk Gold is a light crumbly farmhouse cheese with a beautiful golden colour. Katharine and Jason Salisbury, the founders of Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses, installed a dairy on their farm near Needham Market in 2009, where Katharine handmakes their cheeses from the pasteurised milk of their robotically milked Guernsey and Jersey herd. Suffolk Gold’s colour is a delightful peculiarity of Guernsey milk. The flavour is creamy and buttery with a light tang. More information (including allergens) >
Suffolk Gold is mild with an earthy taste. It makes the perfect Suffolk ploughman's lunch with crusty bread and an apple.

On a beautiful sunny day In May 2018, Clare visited Whitegate Farm, the home of Katherine and Jason Salisbury and their Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses. Katherine and Jason have been at Whitegate Farm since 2008. when they set up their own herd to provide rich, creamy milk to make cheese.
Katherine has three cheeses in her Suffolk Farmhouse range: Suffolk Gold, Suffolk Blue and Suffolk Brie. They are all made from pasteurised milk using vegetarian rennet. Find out more about this cheese making visit on the blog >
I'm no cheese expert, but I don't find the description of this cheese as very accurate because I don't think it is a crumbly cheese but it is 'creamy and buttery with a light tang at the finish'. I've bought it twice, so I can say that I like it very much.
Such a well behaved cheese, creaminess without being cloying....and one of my husband's favourites too!
