Stoney Cross cheese
Stoney Cross is a washed-curd, natural-rind cheese made at Lyburn Farm, in the New Forest. It was developed in 2008 by Mike Smales and Paul Thomas, using milk from Mikes herd of Holstein-Friesian cows. The cheese is made using pasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet and is aged for four months.
The rind consists of a natural microflora consisting principally of Mucor and Scopulariopsis with some Penicillium. It is brushed and turned throughout its affinage to give a velvety appearance. The rind imparts a hint of mushrooms and earthiness to the sweet, warm and buttery flavours of the paste.
Stoney Cross takes its name from a disused Second-World War airbase in the New Forest, close to the Farm.
Stoney Cross has achieved Gold at the British Cheese Awards, The Great Taste Awards and Nantwich Show and Silver at the World Cheese Awards and the Great Yorkshire Show.
