Brothers, Simon and Tim Jones are behind Lincolnshire Poacher and are fourth generation farmers, their family have been running the farm since 1917. Their Father, Richard started up the dairy part of their business in 1970's and Simon started making cheese on a small scale when he returned from agricultural school in 1992.

Now the business has grown and they use all the milk from their 230 Holstein Friesian cows to produce a range of artisan cheeses. 

Lincolnshire Red is based on an old fashioned traditional Red Leicester recipe with a modern twist. They mature it for about 6 months (much younger than Lincolnshire Poacher, but older than most Red Leicesters). They have added the colour to clearly differentiate it from  Lincolnshire Poacher. The colour comes from the addition of annatto to the milk in the vat at the start of cheese making. Annatto is a natural colour widely used in the cheese world and comes from the seed of the Anchiote tree in South America.

Unlike Lincolnshire Poacher, it is made using vegetarian rennet. It has a moist creamy texture with a delicate buttery flavour, with a nice clean finish that lingers on your palate.
