Makers of award-winning handcrafted cheese Belton Farm has been continuing the tradition of Great British Cheesemakers since 1840—showcasing classic and contemporary styles of British cheese made from locally sourced, grass-fed, and free-range milk.

I recently had the opportunity to talk to Justin Beckett, the company’s Managing Director, to learn more about its various cheeses and commitment to excellence.

Justin Beckett, Marketing Director, Belton Farm“We’ve been making cheese at Belton since about 1840. My family have been there since 1922. So, I’m the third-generation cheesemaker,” Justin explained to me. “We have fantastic milk fields, so we collect milk, local, from about 85 farms—all within a 20 mile radius of our cheese dairy. And of those farms, they’re all grass-fed; they’re all free range, and about 10 of them are organic. So, about 10-15 percent of our make is organic production, and I farm organically, myself, as well.”
