May Hill Green
A semi-soft cows' milk cheese, made by Charles Martell at Dymock in Gloucestershire.
It's made with a mixture of milk from the farm's rare-breed Gloucester cattle and that from local Friesian's, in a similar manner to their better known 'Stinking Bishop' but cheeses are not rind-washed (so lack stink). Instead the surface is covered with chopped nettles, which gives cheeses a distinct character.
