Could the world of hamper cheese have a new contributor?
Published on 18/02/2011

Enthusiasts may be seeing a new brand of hamper food in the future.

T.Lochhead and Sons, a family dairy farming firm based in Mouswald, Scotland, has developed a five-year plan which will see 250,000 litres of milk converted into cheese annually, the Dumfries & Galloway Standard reports.

Gavin Lochhead commented that the business move – which has been under consideration for years – is an exciting prospect.

"It will certainly add to the value of our milk production. The industry is obviously going through a very hard time at the moment and diversifying looks like the right move," he said.

The venture has received £148,063 from the Scottish government to part-fund extra facilities that need to be built.

Inspired by the family's herd of Swiss brown cows, the cheese, which will initially be sold at farmers' markets, will be called Kedar.

Last month, it was reported that the Gloucestershire tradition of cheese rolling could soon be transformed into a two day festival-style event.
