Where’s it made? Interestingly a lot of the Caerphilly eaten in South Wales is actually made by cheesemakers in Somerset. This is due to the quality of milk in the area and the amount of spare milk available. Gorwydd is no exception. Maugan and Todd Trethowan make this version in North Somerset and have since 2014, having first set up in Wales.
Nestling in the rolling hills of Somerset, a herd of 100 Holsteins and 20 Jersey cows are grazing sleepily on silty, organic peat soils. This feast of nutrients is where it all starts for the incredible cheese-making story of Trethowan’s Dairy.
