Cardo is a semi soft, unpasteurized goat's milk cheese made by Mary Holbrook on her Sleight Farm, near Timsbury, Somerset. The cheese used to aged at Neal's Yard Dairy for several weeks during which they were periodically washed with a brine solution, resulting in a sticky, orange coating of Brevibacterium linens which used to give the rind its pungency and savouriness. The paste used to be deep ivory with small eyes throughout and a runny breakdown just beneath the grey-orange rind. Flavours are delicate, floral typically associated with goat's cheeses.
