Coastal Cheddar is matured at the Ford Farm Dairy located on the world heritage Jurassic Coast line in the salty sea air.
Coastal has been developed to appeal to the consumer demand for rich, rugged and mature cheddars. Aged for a minimum of fifteen months, Coastal is often characterised with a distinctive crunch – a result of the calcium lactate crystals which form naturally in the cheese as it matures.
Coastal is a constant recipient of awards at the leading trade shows across the country, most recently achieving gold medals at the British Cheese Awards and the International Cheese Awards.
Our Coastal Cheddar is aged for up to fifteen months which bestows it with its rich and intense flavour but the culture used also adds a contrasting subtle, sweet, top note.
From time to time, you may encounter a characteristic ‘crunch’ when you bite into this cheddar – a consequence of the calcium lactate crystals which form naturally as the cheddar ages.
Pairs lovely with cider
