Galloway Farmhouse Cheeses make the Cairnsmore range from their own organic Friesland sheep's milk, as well as goat's and organic cow's milk. Best known for their hard ewe's cheese, a version of which is also smoked on site, they also make hard cow's and goat's cheese, a ricotta and new rinded versions of the hard cheeses. Their green peppercorn goat's cheese was recently awarded 97% in the Royal Highland Show, beating all cheeses entered but one. All are unpasteurised, and made from vegetarian rennet. They sell wholesale to delis and restaurants, as well as from their on-farm shop, From Ewe to You. The shop also sells cheese accompaniments and sheep-themed gifts and crafts, from fleeces to pottery, and farm tours are offered in summer. Though the shop is closed in winter, they will sell from the farm if you call to let them know you're coming. The same goes for weekend sales – if they're around, they'll sell cheese.
