Isle of Wight Blue (200g)
This naturally rinded soft blue cheese is made with pasteurised milk from a Guernsey herd. When the cheese is young it has a relatively mild blue flavour but if you keep it in the fridge until close to its use by date, the flavour will be a lot stronger with a deeper, more rounded taste in the mouth.
Do not be alarmed! Being naturally rinded, it is covered in green, blue, grey and white mould. This gives it bags of character and the variety of surface moulds on the rind will make it stand out on any cheeseboard.
Isle of Wight Blue 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 in 2013.
Our range of West Country artisan cheeses are all from small, specialist cheesemakers. Dorset and Somerset have some of the very best producers whose cheeses are lovingly crafted using milk produced by wonderful local dairy farmers.
We founded the Dorset Meat Company to provide you with the finest grass-fed, outdoor-reared meat, produced sustainably and in harmony with nature. We care about traditional British farming which is why we work with 20 small, family-run farms based in Dorset and Wiltshire that produce really wholesome, natural meat. We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.
At the Dorset Meat Company, we work with 20 small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire that all work to produce ethically reared, nutritious meat, in a natural growing environment, in harmony with nature. Animals that have been allowed to grow at a natural pace and have not been rushed.
100% Grass Fed
Our ruminant animals enjoy a diet of 100%, pure, natural grass. Which is all they ever eat.
Our local countryside is rich in grassland. “Partly real, partly dream country” is how Thomas Hardy described Dorset. Over 40% of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the steep ridges and chalk valleys lending the landscape a rugged beauty. Dotted around the Blackmore Vale, small farms raise traditional cattle breeds like Herefords, Aberdeen Angus and Ruby Reds. The areas of clay soil are rich in grass, wildflowers, clover and legumes, the principal food source for sheep and cattle for centuries. It is these natural environments, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, that help to support a wide range of wildlife and insects as an essential element of a vibrant, thriving ecology.
