Some of those farm made ciders are magic

Went on a geological mapping trip to Hereford when a student. Area being mapped was littered with "Cider Farms" :lol: :lol: :lol:


I bet some of your measurements of dip and dip direction of strata were a bit off as well. :lol:

Caboc used to do a nice garlicky one rolled in oats, but haven't seen it for ages.

I know it's a lot in one go but that only works out at £2.30 a pint.

Mellis have a shop in Glasgow - Cheese heaven, for Scottish try Dunsyre Blue and Blue Lanark - pretty amazing full flavours.

On a supermarket note I buy the island cheddars, they are all pretty nice, especially Orkney Mature.

And to top it all off you need some Welsh Dragon Pate.

Amazing stuff.

Did however get to the Arran Cheese Shoppe and got some mature cheddar :P which turned out to be average :cry: :cry: and some Arran Camembert :P wiich is ace and according to my kids smells (and looks) like a cow pat :lol:

Arran Camembert - cheese of the week - only £28 a kilo :shock:

I think it's the weight of delivering liquid that bumps up the price. You can buy it for £2.30 a pint in my local! Perhaps you'd be better off coming to Somerset for a weekend of camping, riding retro bikes, eating cheese and drinking cider! :)
