Meet our suppliers: The Strathearn Cheese Co.


Award-winning artisan cheeses, made in rural Perthshire using local milk supplies and local flavours.


Strathearn Cheese Co. is a Scottish cheesemaking business, founded in 2016. It operates from the Cultybraggan old WWII prisoner of war camp near Comrie and is run by co-founder Pierre Leger. A small team of six now make cheese every day.

 

At the Woodhouse, we stock two of Strathearn’s bestsellers:



The Wee Comrie: Royal Highland Show 2022 Show Champion and Reserved Overall Dairy Product Champion

A mellow soft cheese with a buttery taste and aroma, matured for 21 days so it develops a naturally-formed rind.



The Strathearn: Royal Highland Show 2019 Gold Cheese Award / World Cheese Awards 2017 Gold Medal

A semi-soft cheese, matured for 4 weeks and washed in a Glenturret single malt whisky flavoured brine every other day.



The cheeses are both made with vegetarian rennet and pasteurised cow’s milk.

 

Pierre also very helpfully supplies us with other cheeses - including St Andrews Farmhouse Smoked Anster, Isle of Mull Hebridean Blue and Dunlop Dairy’s Bonnet goat’s cheese – as well as the hugely moreish East Neuk of Fife oatcakes.



“We are so honoured to be supplying cheese to the Woodhouse.

As a small artisan business, it is greatly satisfying to see how well the team at the Woodhouse sell our own and other Scottish cheeses.

Our Wee Comrie seems to be the people's favourite, so every Thursday we head over to stock up the shelves and are always greeted with a welcoming smile!” - Pierre



All the cheeses we get from the Strathearn Cheese Co. can be found in our chilled cabinet opposite the Skinner's counter.
