When the Maxwell family relocated from Scotland to Northumberland in the 1950s, they moved their whole farm, including the cows, by train.

Overlooked by Northumberland's picturesque Cheviot Hills, North Doddington Farm is home to a herd of Friesian-Ayrshire cows that for most of the year are able to graze on lush, clover-rich pastures. The Maxwell family has been running the farm since 1950, after moving there from the west of Scotland, and an entire generation is currently involved in getting the maximum value from their herd's highly flavoursome milk: Neill Maxwell and James Kelly look after the cows, milking them every morning. Some of that fresh, still-warm milk is used to make ice cream. Much of the rest is turned into cheese by Neill's sister Maggie, who took to her craft in the early 1990s after a thorough schooling in British cheesemaking and trips to France and the Netherlands.

FAQs

How much cheese to buy?

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.

How should I store my cheese?

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.
