St Andrews Farmhouse Cheese / Cheddar Cheese
‘Anster’ cheese is hand-made on the farm – to a traditional recipe – by Jane Stewart, using unpasteurised milk from her husband Robert’s herd of home-bred Holstein Friesian cows.
We started to make our cheese in January 2008 which is when we started the St Andrews Cheese Company, and it is our home bred herd of Holstein Friesians that provide the main ingredient – a real field to plate experience. In May of 2008 we opened our coffee shop where you can watch the cheese being made through our Viewing Gallery windows, enjoy delicious home baking or lunch and of course sample our range of award winning cheeses; Anster, Red Anster, Mature Anster, Smoked Anster and St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar. On a clear day you can sit outside the coffee shop on the balcony and enjoy the panoramic views down across the fields towards the Firth of Forth and beyond.
