Conditions are monitored by the Tinytag View 2 data logger during the production of organic cheese, and record pasteurisation temperatures in line with food safety regulations.
Gorsehill Abbey Farm is an organic dairy farm in the Cotswolds
which produces a number of speciality cheeses. Their range includes
a 'Fromage Frais' and three 'Cotswold' fresh soft creamy cheeses -
Natural, Peppercorn, and Herb - as well as a number of fresh
moulded and ripened cheeses.
The organic cheese is made using the milk from the organic dairy
herd. As part of the cheesemaking process, it needs to be
pasteurised, and then cooled and cultured at specific temperatures
for a certain length of time. A record of the pasteurisation
temperature and time is required for food safety regulations, as
well as a record of the cheesemaking temperature and time for the
farm's own reference.
A Tinytag View 2
data logger, which incorporates a digital display, is used to
monitor the milk temperature. Michael Stacey, Owner of Gorsehill
Abbey Farm chose the Tinytag for its ease of use, accuracy and
value for money. It was also important to have a logger that
displays current readings as well as recording over time. Michael
comments, "Tinytags must be good, we're still using them after many
