the Cote Hill Story

Our ethos is simple. Contented grazing cows, produce amazing quality milk, which with a lot of skill and expertise create great tasting cheese.

The morning milk at Cote Hill Farm is taken direct from the cows into the cheese rooms to be hand crafted into our award winning Cote Hill Cheeses. By not pasteurising the milk it allows the full complex flavour of the milk to be a part of the finished cheeses.

What Makes Cote Hill Cheese?

We liken making great cheese to making great wine. The soil & earth has such an impact on how the grass grows & tastes

Cheese Making Is Like Making Porridge The Temperature Has To Be Just Right
