Belvoir Ridge Creamery
I spent a great day on the farm – shooting a commission at the Belvoir Ridge Creamery – where they make the very rare Colwick cheese. The owners, Alan and Jane Hewson gained wide exposure when they appeared on Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty’s Friday Night Feast with the cheese they make. Jamie Oliver ended up placing orders for Colwick cheese there and then, serving it in his restaurants! Alan and Jane keep Red Poll Cattle grazing on their farm and it’s milk from these cows that is used to make the delicious Colwick, as the milk is higher in protein than black & white cows, making it ideal for cheese making.
