With the help of their 230 strong herd of pedigree Holstein Fresian Cows, Simon and his brother Tim who joined the company in 2000, use unpasteurised milk and traditional methods to create their cheeses.
Lincolnshire Poacher is a hard, mature cheese that is somewhere between a cheddar and a Swiss mountain cheese. This award-winning Supreme Champion cheese is a hardpressed, full-fat cheese – cheddar in style, but slightly open in texture. Rich herbaceous notes linger on the palate.
