Set amongst Northumberland's picturesque Cheviot Hills, North Doddington Farm has been farmed by the Maxwell Family since 1950, when they arrived from the west of Scotland. An entire generation is currently involved in getting the maximum value from their herd's excellent milk: some is used to make ice cream and yoghurt, while much of the rest is turned into cheese by James Maxwell, who recently learned to make cheese from his aunt Maggie, the cheesemaker since the family started making cheese in 1992.

FAQs

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.

Taste sensation, I love it, it’s very similar to comte , but made from creamy British milk.
Firm favourite in our house, and goes well with crackers and chutney
