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 goat’s milk and with ewe’s milk, and cheeses made with cow’s milk. Several of the cheeses are made with unpasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet.
