The popular cheese stall is run by WLPM volunteers. We sell a wide range of locally-made and very tasty cheeses – many of them have won national and international awards. There are cheeses for every taste and appetite: soft and hard cheeses made with milk from goats and sheep, and cheeses made with cows’ milk. Several cheeses are made with unpasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.
