Raw Milk

St Bartholomew cheese is made from raw cow's milk. Raw or 'unpasteurised' milk can be suspected by some, but in fact many of the best farmhouse cheeses in the world as made from it.

Andy Swinscoe at The Courtyard Dairy has written an excellent article covering the differences between pasteurised and unpasteurised cheeses.

Fen Farm, who make the delicious Baron Bigod cheese from raw milk, have also covered the subject in some detail on their website.
