Lincolnshire Poacher

Ulceby Grange Farm sits on the east coast of England and near the lovely Lincolnshire Wolds. While Ulceby Grange has been run by Simon and Tim Jones' family since 1917, it wasn't until 1992 that Simon made the farm's first batch of cheese.

Aged at least eighteen to twenty-four months, Lincolnshire Poacher is meaty and sharp cheddar and can at times bear a surprising hint of pineapple.
