Stoney Cross is our youngest offering from Lyburn Farmhouse Cheesemakers. The cheese comes as a 1Kg truckle or a 2.5Kg wheel, mould ripened, not dissimilar to a French Tomme De Savoie. At 8 weeks old it is creamy, buttery in texture, sweet flavours, with a distinctly earthy finish. The name Stoney Cross comes from an old World War II airfield 2 miles to the South of us.
This cheese suits a very broad section of customer. Even those that like a strong cheese will enjoy the subtle flavours and the smooth texture of this little cheese, and can be found in a number independent stores and 60 Waitrose Stores in Central Southern England
