From our experience, Dorset's Open Air Dairy Cheddar is always a hit. The Open Air Dairy is unique in its approach to UK dairy farming. Currently the only large-dairy farm in Europe that is milking cows in the field as they graze, Tom Foot and Neil Grigg are producing milk from pasture fed dairy cows which are milked in mobile milking parlours which follow the cows while they graze in the field! This leads to happy cows and therefore, delicious milk. From this, rich, distinctive handmade cheddar is made just two miles from Tom and Neil’s farm.  (Vegetarian, Pasteurised, Cows’ milk)

Designed to be eaten as a young cheese, Cornish Blue is a very different product from traditional English blue cheeses such as Blue Stilton and Blue Shropshire. Its flavour is mild and creamy, with a dense texture and buttery richness; instead of the ‘salty tang’ common of other traditional blue cheeses it has a gentle sweetness. Cornish Blue is made by Philip and Carol Stansfield on their farm on the edge of Bodmin Moor and was judged Supreme Champion at the 2010 World Cheese Awards one of multiple accolades it has received over the years.

Bluemin White, produced by the Shepherd’s Purse creamery in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, is a rare example of a British surface-ripened blue cheese – that is, it has the rind of a blue cheese, all wrinkled olive grey but the contrasting yellowy paste of a soft, white cheese. This makes it one of the most striking, and unique, cheeses aesthetically. It oozes deliciousness with a rich, butteriness giving way to a delightful sweetness. Perfect!! (Vegetarian, Pasteurised, Cows milk)

Burrow Mump is an unpasteurised, washed-rind, semi-hard sheep’s milk cheese from White Lake Cheese in Somerset, close to the Glastonbury Festival site. The cheese has a compressed texture with a delicate and creamy flavour that develops to a sweet and nutty finish. It is matured for 8 weeks and is regularly washed with a Somerset cider brandy that helps develop those complex, lingering flavours. An attractive addition to any cheeseboard, it is named after a nearby natural mound. (Unpasteurised, Sheeps milk)
