‘Everybody SALSA!’

No, this is not a new addition to our Kids Meet Kids event, but we still think it is exciting news, and maybe even worth a little dance – Fielding Cottage has received SALSA approval!

SALSA stands for ‘Safe and Local Supplier Approval’. It is a food safety standard developed specifically for small food businesses. If you are in the industry (or just a bit geeky) you can read about the technical stuff here, but in plain English it means you can be sure our cheese is produced to exceptionally high standards.

A huge thank you must go to Emma and Dave, our very hard-working cheese producers, who ensure that all our cheeses are as fresh and delicious as can be.

Wensum White – in the top 62 cheeses in the world!

Fielding Cottage Wensum White cheese wins a super gold award at the World Cheese Awards (WCA) 2014

Our Fielding Cottage Wensum White cheese won a super gold award at the 2014 World Cheese Awards (WCA)

Of course we know our Wensum White is absolutely delicious, and lots of our loyal customers have discovered this too, but now it is official!

At the World Cheese Awards in London last week, our brie-style goats cheese ‘Wensum White’ won both a Silver and a Super Gold Award. This means the judges placed it within the top 62 cheeses in the world, from over 2600 entries from 33 countries!

To say we are delighted is an understatement, but there is little time for celebration as we need to get back to the dairy and make some more…! Thank you so much to all our customers and supporters, and of course our cheesemakers extraordinaire; Emma and Wendy.

Why not visit our shop and try Wensum White for yourself? Better still, order one of our Taste of Norfolk Christmas Cheese Hampers and enjoy a feast of delicious Norfolk cheese!
