The Book and Bucket Cheese Company hand make artisan cheese in the heart of Dorset from 100% sheep milk. All our milk is sourced locally, collected within 24hrs of being milked and is made into cheese that day. 

We have a selection of cheeses that we hand make: 

Hardy's - signature Dorset Hard Cheese 

Austen - our take on a traditional feta

Hemingway - a delicious, crumbly salad cheese

Shakespeare - to brie or not to brie? Our white bloom rind cheese

Burns - a traditional 'squeaky' Halloumi cheese

Smokey Burns - an oak smoked Halloumi

Orwell - our delicious soft cheese



The Book and Bucket Cheese Company was founded by Peter Morgan and has been in the works for several years. Peter was originally asked to develop cheeses with the purpose of making small handmade batches of the highest quality and supplying them to local restaurants and farm shows. The success of the cheeses has led Peter to slowly increasing production to supply selected outlets within the South West.


When Peter started to make cheese, he sought the advice of people that had between them over 120 years’ experience in the industry. They each said the starting point was to buy some books and read as much as possible. After that it is just “bucket science” and to keep playing until you make something you like - and you think someone will buy!


In January 2019, with a bucket full of recipes and ideas and the help of friends, Peter launched the Book and Bucket Cheese Company.
