From the Jurassic Coast

Coastal Rugged Mature Cheddar

Coastal Cheddar

Coastal Cheddar is matured at the Ford Farm Dairy located on the world heritage Jurassic Coast line in the salty sea air.

Coastal has been developed to appeal to the consumer demand for rich, rugged and mature cheddars. Aged for a minimum of fifteen months, Coastal is often characterised with a distinctive crunch – a result of the calcium lactate crystals which form naturally in the cheese as it matures.

Coastal Export

Coastal was first launched in 2000.  It is widely available in the UK but has really stolen the show across the Atlantic in North America.

We have been told that Coastal is now the biggest selling branded Cheddar in the USA and it has undoubtedly helped us win the highly prestigious and competitive Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Export category on two separate occasions.

Coastal Cheese


Coastal is a constant recipient of awards at the leading trade shows across the country, most recently achieving gold medals at the British Cheese Awards and the International Cheese Awards.

Tasting notes

Our Coastal Cheddar is aged for eighteen months which bestows it with its rich and intense flavour but the culture used also adds a contrasting subtle, sweet, top note.

From time to time, you may encounter a characteristic ‘crunch’ when you bite into this cheddar – a consequence of the calcium lactate crystals which form naturally as the cheddar ages.
