All about Melbury Cheese from Woodlands Dairy

Woodlands Dairy is a business based in Dorset, owned by the Tweddell family, originally focused on producing yoghurt made from sheeps’ milk. Customers asked for cheese as well as yoghurt, and eventually the decision was made to produce Melbury, a hard (ish) cheese matured for nine months which won silver in the 2018 British Cheese Awards.

We found this a very surprising cheese. It looks as if it will be a hard cheddar, but in fact it’s soft and tangy…and very good.

I would recommend pairing it with a robust Burgundy.

Highly recommended!
