Alastair Rogers and Bernadette started making cheese in 2006 as Treveador Farm Dairy on the land of Treveador farmhouse. Alastair originally trained with master cheesemaker Chris Ashby of Bottesford, Leicestershire, expert in blue cheese. Chris is still an invaluable support in the development of the Helford cheeses. As Alastair and Bernie concentrated on making and selling the cheese, Alastair’s son Jon took over care of the herd. By 2012, as the business developed, they moved the cheese operation to an industrial unit in Helston. This allowed the cheese making operation to expand and develop a much higher profile.
The Treveador journey that began with Blue Horizon, a soft blue cheese continues to develop and mature with Helford Sunrise an exciting new addition to a truly exciting award winning range of Cornish artisan cheeses. It doesn’t stop there – Alastair has some exciting new products in the pipeline!
