Berkswell cheese comes from England. Fletcher family at Ram Hall farm, near Berkswell, West Midlands is famous as an ace producer of Berkswell cheeses.
Unpasturised ewes' milk is used while preparing this cheese with a traditional method. The moulds of cheeses are left in plastic kitchen colanders which give the cheese its typical shape. Made in small vats, Berkswell cheese is left for maturation at least for 6 months.
Since animal rennet is added during cheese making process, the cheese is not suitable for vegetarians.
