The West Country’s answer to raclette, Ogleshield is a gentle yet complex cheese, with a sweet and milky aroma and warm, savoury flavour reminiscent of chicken broth. The texture beneath the pungent pink rind is soft and pliant, and it melts beautifully.

Made with pasteurised cow's milk and animal rennet.

*Please note that we occasionally sell a raw milk version of this cheese. The piece you receive will show the milk treatment involved in the batch that we send. If you have any concerns about this, please contact us prior to purchasing.

Ogleshield is a washed rind cow's milk cheese made by Jamie Montgomery and Tim Griffey. It is the result of Jamie’s decision to transform the milk of his herd of Jerseys into cheese, milk which was until then exclusively sold for drinking.

Our work with this cheese

Ogleshield is the only cheese made exclusively from Jersey cow’s milk that we sell at Neal’s Yard Dairy. Unlike Montgomery’s Cheddar, Ogleshield is a relatively quick cheese to make, characterised by a low acidity and pliant paste. Initially, the cheese was called ‘Jersey Shield’ and had a natural rind composed of greyish-green moulds. William Oglethorpe, at the time senior cheese-maturer at Neal’s Yard Dairy, subsequently developed a method to mature Ogleshield that suited it better: washing the cheeses with a brine solution. In recognition of William’s help, the name of the cheese was adapted to incorporate his surname.
