Island Cheese was initially established to supply our delicious flavoured cheddars to a local and tourist market through our own shop, it soon became apparent however, that supply was required further afield. In addition to our mail order service, we now supply five wholesalers who distribute to farm shops, delis, restaurants and food halls throughout the UK. We also retail at about 25 farmer’s markets per month in Scotland.
In 2006 we took over Bellevue Cheese Company located at Blackwaterfoot in Arran. Here we produce Arran Blue, Arran Camembert, Arran Mist and Crowdie (an old Scottish recipe cream cheese). Both the Arran Blue and Arran Camembert have achieved silver medals at the British Cheese Awards, and Arran Blue has won Gold in the World Cheese Awards.
Our shop and dairy is located within Home Farm Visitors Centre, about one mile north of Brodick. On entering the shop you will find a huge selection of Arran and Scottish cheeses, a host of other Arran food products and a large viewing window which allows you to see into the dairy and watch the cheese makers at work. Here you can sample the delicious cheese before spending the rest of a fantastic day looking round the incredible sights the best island in the UK has to offer.
