Blue Cheese

These cheeses range between hard and soft, mild and strong, but always have distinct blue or green veins running through them. The veins are a type of penicillin and are usually introduced by hand into the interior of the cheese with the use of a metal spike.

Cote Hill Blue

A creamy blue cheese made with unpasteurised milk to give a buttery and satisfying flavour

Michael and Mary Davenport have been farming at Cote Hill Farm in Lincolnshire for over 30 years. Michael milks their herd of 70 Friesian, Holstein and Red Poll cows twice a day and Mary uses the milk from the morning's milking to make the cheese.

During the summer, the cows graze clover rich pastures and in the winter eat grass, maize silage and red clover which are all grown on the farm. This home produced forage, together with the high standard of cow management, produces top quality, award winning milk that is rich in butterfat and protein and used unpasteurised to optimise the unique flavours of the cheeses.

Cote Hill Blue matures slowly over 3 months into a soft, aromatic cheese. It has a distinctive rind and a blue veined, soft, creamy texture that coats the mouth and leaves behind a buttery sweetness and subtle kick.

Cote Hill Blue has been favourably reveiwed by Tom Parker Bowles in the Mail on Sunday. It won a gold medal in both the 2006 and 2007 British Cheese Awards.

Cote Hill Blue has recently won 2014 Super Gold World Cheese Awards, 2012 Bronze World Cheese Awards, 2012 Silver British Cheese Awards.
