A creamy, thick Middle Eastern-style yoghurt cheese, that has about half the fat and calories than standard cream cheese. Delicious and healthy, it can be used as a dip, spread on crackers or as a healthy, fresh accompaniment to any meal.
This particular one from Court Lodge Organics took home a 2 Star award at The Great Taste Awards.
Court Lodge is a working organic farm on the edge of the Pevensey Levels in Sussex, run by the Harding family. Their Soil Association certified yogurts are made in a small farm dairy using milk that comes straight from the cows into the dairy, so couldn’t be fresher!
Sustainability and encouragement of biodiversity are important elements of their farming system, as is the well being of the cows - a mixture of grass-fed British Friesians & Ayrshires. The cows have access to pasture for around 200 days a year and are truly free range. They graze and forage naturally on organic pasture and are never given hormones or routine antibiotics.
