We, Simon (front) and Tim (back) Jones, produce award-winning handmade Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese on our dairy farm situated on the eastern edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
The use of our freshly produced unpasteurised milk from our own dairy herd which graze on the rolling hills of the farm is the basis for the distinctive characteristics of our cheese.
This is, of course in conjunction with the care and attention taken during the making of each individual batch of hand made cheese. To ensure our milk is of the highest quality, our ‘girls’are treated like royalty. They’ve even got their own happy cow brushes so they can give themselves a really good scratch!! (click here to have a look).
The cheese is made a little bit like traditional West Country Cheddar though we have several key differences in our recipe that give Lincolnshire Poacher its own unique flavour and texture. It is matured for 14-24 months and although the taste varies with the seasons it usually has a distinctive fruity, nutty taste with a clean sweet finish.
It has been described as sitting somewhere between the continental hard mountain cheeses (such as Comte) and traditional West Country Cheddar.
