Forever the gracious host, David entertains our in-depth cheese questions, doesn’t bat an eye over our geeky excitement, and rounds off a tour of the dairy by showing us the ripening rooms and talking through his plans for the future (which are very exciting!).
The day isn’t complete without a 50 yard stroll down to the farm, where David introduces us to the mixed herd, talks us through the milking parlour and explains that the music playing in the background is in fact one of the cows’ favourite songs!
Before heading back to London, we make a quick detour via David's local, where we toast the well-deserved success of Rollright and raise our glasses to the exciting times ahead.
Throughout the day our admiration for David has grown - yes, we always loved Rollright's buttery, rich, mellow flavour; but when you see the level of care and passion that goes into each wheel there is no doubting why David Jowett has managed to make such a unique cheese, which we are proud to include on the Cheese Room's shelves.
