The Isle of White Cheese Company first started making cheese on the current Queen Bower Dairy site in October 2006. They recognised that there wasn't any cheese being made locally on the island. With no cheesemaking or dairy experience at all, they decided to set up the Isle of Wight Cheese Company, and headed off to Agricultural College in Cheshire, to learn how to make cheese. First of all, the dairy farm had its own herd of Guernsey cows grazing right next to it and also, the farmer here, after he had finished his local milk round, had a large amount of surplus milk. So two vacant barns on the farm were converted in to a brand new cheesemaking facility and we set about making a variety of cheeses that we could give to the Island. Isle of Wight Blue and Isle of Wight Soft are delivered to the south coast by boat and are the perfect cheeses to complete the perfect cheese board.
