Doddington Dairy

Artisanal Cheese by Doddington Dairy, Northumberland.

Doddington Dairy, located in Northumberland, has a rich history of cheese-making that dates back to the 1950s when the Maxwell family moved from West Scotland to Doddington. The farm, nestled near the Cheviot Hills, initially focused on traditional dairy farming. In the late 1980s, the next generation of the Maxwell family began experimenting with cheese-making, leading to the creation of their renowned cheeses​.

Doddington Dairy is best known for its Doddington Cheese, a unique blend influenced by Red Leicester, Cheddar, and Gouda. This unpasteurised cow's milk cheese is matured for over a year, developing a crystalline texture and a complex flavour profile with notes of sweet caramel and nuttiness​. Another notable product is Admiral Collingwood, named after the famous British naval commander, which showcases the dairy's commitment to quality and tradition​.

The dairy's products are crafted using milk from their own herd of Ayrshire, Friesian, and Normandy cows, ensuring freshness and quality. The milk is piped directly from the milking parlour to the dairy, where it is turned into cheese and ice cream by the Maxwell family and their dedicated team​.
