Our Cheeses

We make soft, semi-soft and crumbly cheeses

Our family run business uses cows milk from the family's dairy farm in Teesdale.  It's been in the family for four generations so we know the milk is good.

Teesdale Blue

A mild creamy semi-soft blue veined cheese, Teesdale Blue was one of the first cheeses we made.  It has won several awards and continues to be a popular choice.  Made from cows milk from the family farm.

White Hilton

A complex creamy white cheese that changes as you chew it.  White Hilton was one of the first cheeses we made and is named after the village Hilton where the family farm is.  Grandad never lived further than a 2 mile radius of Hilton.

Teesdale Goat

A mild mellow goat with our distinct rind to finish it off. Teesdale Goat won Gold at the World Cheese Awards when we were still making in our utility room.  Something that we're still immensly proud of today.  Perfect with honey!

Barney Brie

Our robust farmhouse brie packs in a lot of flavour for such a small cheese.  It has a unique appearance due to the flora and fauna that surrounds our cold room so we feel it truely represents the area of Teesdale.

Doris

A dales style cheese, crumbly in the middle with a soft edging.  Doris is named after Grandma on the farm, who's chicken money helped buy the first quality cows.  Our award winning cheeses are as much a part of her legacy as Grandad's.

Allison's Garlic Special

Inspired by a maltese recipe and a nod to Allison's maltese roots, Allison's Garlic Cheese is a young fresh cheese made with mulberry milk from the family farm.  The combined heritage of Allison and Jonathan in cheese.

Nanny Blue

A blue goat cheese with a mild rocquefort flavour. Nanny Blue took Allison four years to finalise but the effort was worth it as it has now become a firm favourite of blue cheese fans.

Ronnie

Ronnie, or Grandad to us, fiercly and successfully protected the family dairy farm iagainst foot and mouth in 2001.  Using a similar recipe to Doris but cut, waxed and matured for a tangier more acidic flavour, Ronnie cheese recognises our award winning cheeses are a part of Grandad's legacy.

Durham Blue

Our newest addition to the range and only available here at the farm.  Durham Blue was conceived during the 2020 COVID lockdown and launched in June 2021 to recognise the amazing community spirit of the people of Durham.  It's a creamy red veined cheese with a rich blue taste and an acidic twang that rounds the flavour off nicely.
