Pioneering British Farmhouse Cheesemakers for Over 30 Years
We are great friends with many of our British farmhouse cheesemakers, working very closely with them to understand the challenges they face and what makes our cheese so great. We regularly visit the farm to see the cheese being made and where all that wonderful flavour comes from.

Great British Cheese
British Isles farmhouse cheese was a rich chapter in our heritage before the 1920s, being home to 1000s of cheeses, but by the 1950s we were left with around 100 cheeses.
However, over the last 40 years, we've witnessed a cheese revolution in this green and pleasant land of ours, and since 'The Great Cheese Renaissance' of the 1970s, we're now making over 750 cheeses, overtaking our French cousins at the World Cheese Awards by making astoundingly good artisan cheese.
Our Award-Winning Cheese
Harnessing our 40+ years of experience and know-how, we challenged ourselves to create our own cheeses.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
Awarded Super Gold at The World Cheese Awards.
An exquisite, cultured blue with complex flavours which develops a soft blue natural rind and a golden interior with dashes of royal blue. The Duke is creamy, sweet & salty, with a delicious peppery finish.
Awarded Bronze at The World Cheese Awards in San Sebastián.
A firm and supple alpine-like cheese, bathed in English Sparkling Rosé from Saffron Grange family vineyard, creates a cheese full of buttery flavours, with an elegant curtsy of sweet notes.

Perfect Cheese Companions
Not just your average pickle here, although there's absolutely nothing wrong with a vintage mature cheddar & pickle sandwich. Selected for the beautiful marriage they have with our cheese, our perfectly paired cheese companions include, locally sourced Honeycomb from Springwell Old Farm in Saffron Walden, where the bees are lovingly cared for, resulting in uniquely translucent honey with a beautifully subtle sweetness, the best that nature has to offer...
Notwithstanding, our exquisite wines, award-winning British charcuterie, locally smoked salmon, beautiful truffled honey, double-baked fig balls from Calabria, the most delicate chutneys & preserves, artisan cheese biscuits, and so much more!
