Mr Moyden’s Smoked Newport 1665 cheese

2014-10-23, Mr Moyden's smoked newport 3Our Marketing Assistant Rebecca just sent me this about a new cheese The Smoked Newport 1665, which we are stocking in Apley Farm Shop. It is made in Shropshire by Mr Moyden, who also makes our own Apley cheese.

Why 1665?

It was the year of the great fire of Newport Shropshire which caused £30,000 worth of damage and 166 families lost their homes.

1665 was certainly not a good year for Newport but rumour has it that it was an exceptional year for smoked cheese!


Smooth buttery texture tastes light, mellow and sweet.

How is the smoked taste done?

Award winning cheese is oak smoked – the whole wheel is cold smoked over oak chips at Bings Heath Smokery resulting in a light oak smoked flavour not detracting from the mellow sweet taste of the original Newport cheese!
