Fielding Cottage is an award-winning small business based on a farm in the heart of Norfolk. The Steggles family has been making cheese in Honingham (near Norwich) since buying 10 milking goats in 2009. There are now approximately 800 goats on the farm.
The name comes from the term 'to mardle" from the Norfolk dialect meaning to gossip or chat. A waxed pasteurised goat's milk cheese which has been matured for a period of 8 weeks and is a beautiful white cheese.
A firm texture, and creamy to taste. There is a hint of pleasant goatiness although not overpowering. A great balance between sweet and savoury. Perfect to eat with crackers or to cook with. Try it in a spinach tart.
