Welcome to the website of award winning Cote Hill Cheese, the only soft cheese to be made in Lincolnshire!

Michael and Mary Davenport have been farming and milking cows at Cote Hill Farm in Lincolnshire for more than 30 years. They started making cheese in October 2005 using milk produced by their herd of 70 Friesian, Holstein and Red Poll cows.

Michael milks the cows twice a day and Mary uses the morning milk to make cheese. During the summer the cows graze clover rich pasture and in the winter eat grass and maize silage together with red clover haylage, which are all grown on the farm. This home produced forage, together with the high standard of cow management produces top quality award winning milk that is rich in butterfat and protein and by using the milk unpasteurised it allows the cheese to achieve an individuality that is unique to Cote Hill Farm.


Peer confirmation came very soon, "We won a Gold for the Cote Hill Blue at the British Cheese Awards after only a year, which gave us a huge boost of confidence".

Since then their cheese making facility has already had to be expanded with the aim to double output over the next two years, and with the help of their new recruit, son Joseph, Cote Hill Blue has continued to win awards, including Gold medals at the Nantwich International Cheese Show in 2007, 2008 and 2009, as seen to the left of this page and a Bronze Medal at the World Cheese Awards 2010.

Cote Hill Cheeses are available throughout England and a list of many of the stockists can be found on our stockist page.
