Golden Hooves has announced the launch of two new cheeses this month, with Red Leicester and Smoked Cheddar available for retail from Wednesday 24 April. Available in 200g pre-packs and 2.5kg blocks for deli counters, these additions to the range follow the highly successful launch of Golden Hooves Mature Cheddar and Vintage Cheddar last year.

Part of British farmer-owned dairy co-operative, First Milk, Golden Hooves will be showcasing its full regen range on stand S170 at the Farm Shop & Deli Show 2024 from 29 April to 1 May. With Golden Hooves cheese now distributed by Blas ar Fwyd, Castell Howell, Caws Cymru, The Cress Company, Curd & Cure, Longman’s and Rowcliffe, retailers across England, Scotland and Wales are now able to stock these deliciously regenerative products.

Bringing two bold new flavour profiles into the fold, these cheeses are both made from 100% regeneratively farmed milk. Smoked traditionally over oak sawdust for 8-12 hours, Golden Hooves Smoked Cheddar delivers authentic oaky notes on the nose and on the palate, while Golden Hooves Red Leicester has a slightly nutty, oaky flavour with tangy background notes, and a deep russet colouring.

Using grazing cows to work the land with their hooves, Golden Hooves farms are taking steps to continually encourage plant and wildlife biodiversity, protect the soil and maintain living roots, a process which is believed to remove carbon from the atmosphere and sequester it into the soil. Part of First Milk’s commitment to continual improvement, these activities are supported by extensive research to measure the impact that these initiatives are having on the soil.

Said Leona McDonald, director, Golden Hooves: “We’ve been blown away by the reception we’ve had for our cheddars over the past 12 months, so are excited to be unveiling two new deliciously regenerative cheeses. Made using fully traceable regeneratively farmed milk, our Red Leicester and Smoked Cheddar are two British classics that dare people to think differently about where their food comes from and the impact it’s having on the environment. Can cheese save planet earth? Well, we know we have some super cheese at Golden Hooves and dairy needs to play its part!”  For more visit goldenhooves.co.uk
