  1. Served Gorwydd Caerphilly cheese at a wedding reception in Caerphilly Castle last night. Guests had never tasted cheese like it…..sadly none left for us!!! Thank you we will be back for more. Ruth and Mike Nash.

  2. Just wanted to say, how much I love your cheese. I have a mold allergy, so, can’t eat so many cheeses. Guy at cheese store in New York City recommended this cheese as it is mold free. Very expensive $29 dollars a pound, so I could only get a quarter of a pound. Born in England, I used to eat allot of English cheeses growing up. This is one of the best I’ve had. When I have some spare cash, will buy more.
