Simon and Tim Jones produce award-winning handmade Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese on their dairy farm situated on the eastern edge of the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds, where the lush pastures sit on chalky land. They are the fourth generation to be running the family farm which has been in the family since 1917. The use of their freshly produced unpasteurised milk from their own dairy herd which graze on the rolling hills of the farm is the basis for the distinctive characteristics of the cheese.This is, of course in conjunction with the care and attention taken during the making of each individual batch of hand made cheese. To ensure the milk is of the highest quality, the ‘girls’are treated like royalty. They’ve even got their own happy cow brushes so they can give themselves a really good scratch.

They are passionate in their responsibility to manage the farm and the business as a whole to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible. There are a number of renewable projects on the farm including a 275kwh wind turbine, 50kwh of solar panels, a straw pellet boiler for heating the milk using straw that they have baled themselves and a ground source heat pump to heat the office and cutting room. As part of their land management, they only cut their hedges in a three year cycle, to promote wildlife on the farm and use very few chemicals on the farm and only when there is no alternative.
