Lincolnshire Red cheese is loosely based on an old fashioned traditional Red Leicester recipe, from the makers of Lincolnshire Poacher. Made using fresh unpasteurised milk from their 230 strong herd of pedigree Holstein Friesian Cows. This cheese is matured for around 4-6 months and is made using vegetarian rennet. Annatto, a natural colour obtained from the seed of the Anchiote tree from South America is added to give the cheese its rich full “red” colour. The cheese is made on the farm in large 20kg drum shaped truckles and has a clean, delicate nutty flavour. The perfect cheese to include in a Ploughmans Lunch with a glass of craft beer and a fruity chutney.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
