Farm Visits

Cotehill Farm, Osgodby

Michael and Mary Davenport have farmed at Cote Hill Farm for 30 years. Michael milks 70 Friesian/Holstein cows. In November 2005 Mary started using some of the milk to make cheese. Two soft cheeses are made using the unpasteurised milk from the morning milking.    

The morning milk is taken from the cows straight into the cheese vat to be hand crafted into Cote Hill Blue or Cote Hill Yellow, often called Yellow Belly because of it’s shape.

Cote Hill's award winning cheeses are available throughout Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.

The cows graze pastures in the summer and in the winter maize and grass silage are made to feed them. The grass land is managed with the environment in mind under a stewardship scheme that not only provides grazing for cows but habitat for nesting lapwings and other wildlife.
