Norfolk Dapple is a cheddar-style cheese made by Ferndale Cheeses in Norfolk. Maker Arthur Betts uses unpasteurised cow’s milk from a local herd of pedigree Holstein-Friesians and traditional ‘cheddaring’ methods to create this rich and round cheese with a hint of nuttiness. Its namesake dappling develops on the truckles’ cloths while it matures for between five and eight months. Read more
This cheddar-style cheese is memorable for its pretty clothbound edge and tastes delicious with an oaky red wine.

A very appealing cheese. It has a firmness which makes it a pleasure to plate it, and a nutty flavour which is very tempting with oat cakes or grapes.
Excellent tasty cheese with a complex hard to describe flavour but I shall definitely buy again
