Welcome To Barwheys


Barwheys is a traditionally-made award winning hard Ayrshire cheese .

We make Barwheys exclusively from the unpasteurised milk of our special herd of pedigree Ayrshire cattle that graze on the green pastures that surround our dairy. The cheese is made by hand, bandaged in traditional cotton cheesecloth and carefully aged on wooden shelves for between twelve and fourteen months.


We are delighted that Barwheys was awarded Gold Medals at the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Royal Highland Shows. We were also awarded Reserve Overall Champion and Best Speciality Scottish Cheese at the 2015 Royal Highland Show.
