Old Ford was a semi-hard, raw goat's milk cheese made by Mary Holbrook of Britain's Sleight Farm. During the summer, when the temperatures used to be warmer, Old Ford used to ripen quickly in three months while in the autumn it used to take eight months for the cheese to reveal its best characteristics. Cheeses made in the autumn, were often quite dense and intense by the time they were sold.
Old Ford had a natural brown rind with a delicious crumble and savoury snowy white interior.
