History: Launched in October 1999. May Hill is an important landscape feature of this part of Gloucestershire. It is topped by 99 pine trees and on May Day revellers assemble round these trees to greet the dawn. This cheese may have been conceived at one of these events.

Sorry, May Hill Green is not available from our on-line store. However, it can be purchased from all good independent cheese shops.
