As a former Dorset resident who now lives more than 10,000 miles away in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, I was pleasantly surprised to find a Dorset cheese successfully competing with other internationally recognised cheeses in our local Costco – the busiest Costco in North America.

It was not only a pleasure to find Coastal Cheese from Ford Farm, Ashley Chase Estate, Dorchester, but to find it one of the best cheeses we have tasted.

How they get a contract with one of North America’s largest retailers I don’t know, but well done anyway.

(And by the way I have no financial or other interest in Ford Farm, just a nostalgia for Hardy Country as my parents lived in Bridport for many years.)
