Go Hard

  • Barbers vintage cheddar- Barber’s Farmhouse Vintage Cheddar is one of the only cheddars in the world with PDO-accreditation. Made with traditional starter cultures, West Country milk and using age-old methods, it’s typically matured for 18 months. Full-bodied and complex
  • Godminster- Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar is made in the heart of the Somerset countryside and matured for up to 12 months.
  • Cornish yarg- Cornish Yarg is all about the nettles!The leaves, which attract naturally occurring moulds, are brushed onto the cheese in concentric circles. As the cheese matures, the edible wrap imparts a delicate, mushroomy taste and develops its unique bloomy white appearance.
  • Dorset red- Dorset Red is lighter than cheddar with a velvety texture. The amber-coloured core is created by adding the vegetable dye annato (as in Westcombe Red or a Double Gloucester). Plus it’s a smoked cheese – so you get the usual gorgeous effect on flavour and a rich red-orange rind.

Softly does it

  • Goddess – The cheese is washed in Somerset cider brandy which gives a lovely pungency and rich, golden colour to the rind. Within the rind the cheese has a lovely fudgy texture reminiscent of Langres and a fully buttery flavour.
  • Little colonel – Little Colonel is a semi-soft washed rind cheese loosely based on a French Livarot. The cheese is exclusively made by Lyburn Cheesemakers for James’s. It is then matured down in Child Okeford for 6-8 weeks, where it develops a smooth supple rind and a harmony of harmony of sophisticated and complex flavours.
  • Shapham – Starting in 1981 the 18th century coachyard of Sharpham House was home to our creamery where their range of hand-made cheeses were produced. Using the rich milk from our Jersey cattle and vegetarian rennet
  • Isle of wight blue – Being naturally rinded, it is covered in green, blue, grey and white moulds. These give the cheese bags of character and the variety of surface moulds that grow on the rind will make it stand out on any cheeseboard. The cheese has been a multiple medal winner at the World, British and International Cheese Awards, most notably winning Best English Cheese at The World Cheese Awards.

Blue heaven
