Suffolk Gold is a traditionally made, artisan, pasteurised cows’ milk cheese, which is produced by Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses in Coddenham. This creamy semi-hard farmhouse cheese possesses a creamy delicate flavour, a unique golden colour and excellent melting properties.

It’s a soft and luxurious cheese that comes very highly recommended from cheese-lovers in the county!
