We make cheese the old-fashioned way, right here in Dorset, UK. Organic milk and years of expertise go into our exceptional products.

    • Animal welfare

      The farm which provides our milk prides itself on the welfare of their cows. We believe that happy cows mean better cheese!

    • Community

      As a family-run business, our community is very important to us. We work with apprentices from a local school, helping them to learn while they work. We pay all our staff a Living Wage.

      We choose only organic milk for our cheeses. This means there are no pesticides or chemical fertilisers involved in the feed of the cows who provide our milk. Better for our planet, better for you.
