Simon and Tim Jones, along with cheesemaker Richard Tagg, produce this award-winning handmade cheese on the Ulceby Grange dairy farm situated on the edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Woods. They use fresh, unpasteurized milk from their own Holstein cows which graze on the rolling hills of their farm.
They are dedicated to three things in their production: making an extraordinary cheese, caring well for their animals and managing their farm in a sustainable manner. From what we've seen and tasted, they are excelling in all three!
Lincolnshire Poacher can be described as a cross between a hard mountain cheese (like Comte) and a traditional West Country Cheddar. The cheese itself comes to us in a 40 pound truckle, with a natural rind speckled with brown and red molds.
The cheese has a firm to hard texture and robust, nutty, sharp flavors with a hint of grass and herbs on the finish. Try it on a piece of crusty baguette slathered with a good mustard and a few slices of apple.
