“It simply started as a bit of fun and a hobby,” recalls Rosenfeld. “I’d wanted a cow for a long time as we have a smallholding and I always thought we should have a cow. I had to talk my family into it, but on my 50th birthday, they surprised me with this cow that was blind in one eye. I immediately said we should call it The Blind Cow, but everyone thought it was a terrible idea as it had such negative connotations,” she laughs. Fast forward from 1997 to 2003, and Rosenfeld had exported her blue cheese to a French cheese shop, in addition to her prominent camembert.
