Lincolnshire Poacher is one of a very few cheeses made on the east coast of England, which Simon Jones describes as a 'dairy farming desert'. Their drier climate and well-drained soil afford them a particularly long grazing season.
Our work with this cheese
We visit Simon and Tim Jones three times a year on our trips up North. The brothers do a pre-selection of cheeses for us when they are about a year old and set aside the batches they feel are the very best for us to select from, which we then taste through together.
