Isle of Mull cheese
Isle of Mull cheese is a strong farmhouse cheese which is produced at Sgriob-ruadh Farm, near Mull's main town of Tobermory. The milk comes from mainly Friesian cows, although sometimes the milk of Ayrshire, Jersey or Brown Swiss cows is used. The milk is unpasteurised
The winter cheeses are whiter in appearance than the summer ones. This is because in winter, the cows are fed on hay and in summer, grass. No colouring of any sort is used, although there occurs a natural bluing on occasions.
The cheese has a hard, dense texture, is pale yellow in colour and is matured in cloths for 12 months.
Neals Yard dairy usually stock Isle of Mull Cheddar.
