Just before the world changed we were approached by a new West Wales cheesemaker - Dan Roberts and Nadine Porter brought us Jebel from The Mount, a beautiful new raw, mould ripened goat’s cheese that they describe as "what happens when a Brit, a Kiwi and a gang of 40 cheeky goats get together at the foot of the Preseli Mountains in Pembrokeshire, Wales."

Following 18 months of extensive global travel on agricultural Nuffield scholarships for their respective countries the pair realised the intensive farming systems they had grown up with were de-valuing food and the food system, producers and rural communities. Both came from intensive agricultural backgrounds with Dan a former manager in the broiler industry in England for a company producing 2 million chickens a week, and Nadine a former partner in a cropping and sheep farm in New Zealand.

Tracing the industrialisation of food production around the world and its impact, they sought to start their own sustainable small artisan cheese business in Wales, where they believe there is strong residual understanding of the importance of food as an intimate commodity. The result is The Mount Goat’s Cheese – a smallholding of 40 milking goats where their cheese is lovingly produced and nurtured as a reflection of the couples' philosophy and love of artisan cheeses. 

Maira, Doris, Chenai, Mayberry, Flossie, Maddie, Hettie, Daisy and the rest of The Mount Goat herd help to produce a fresh buttery vegetarian cheese that develops into something other-worldly as it ages, among the stunning backdrop of the Preseli mountains.
