Barkham Blue has a very distinctive appearance. Made in a 1kg ammonite shaped round, it is covered in an attractive natural mould ripened rustic rind. The deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue – green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt in the mouth flavour, without the harshness associated with some blue cheese.
Baby Barkham follows in the footsteps of Barkham Blue. Its smaller size (around 300g) makes it perfect for deli counters, cheeseboards, gifts and of course Christmas.

Now I have found a local supplier, a pleasant walk for me, I intend to buy one whole cheese per fortnight which means that other customers including some friends are bereft of the finest cheese I have ever tasted (and I have tasted quite a few) after I have visited.
Just tasted your Barkham Blue brought from Farringtons Farm Shop. All I can say is “WOW”!!! Magnificent texture and taste . Thank you.
I would like to tell you just how good your cheese is. My supplier reckons that it is better than Stilton; that is an understatement, it is far better than Stilton Many thanks for a great local product.
Just had to contact you and say how AMAAAZING your Barkham Blue cheese is. Thank you! First discovered last Easter in the Isle of Wight, by accident (!) and will never return to ‘normal’/widely available blue cheeses again. Salty, sweet, tangy, real length of taste. Have been converting all of my turophile buddies, all of whom agree. Thank goodness I’m local-ish….
Had a small piece of Barkham Blue from a selection for a cheese platter at the Kingham Plough Mr Chipping Norton. Beautiful and creamy.
These last three days I have had great hunks of your extraordinary Barkham Blue which I bought at Paxton and Whitfield on Monday and soon I will be going back to America. I am writing you to find out how I might be able to get some of it sent to California. This is a masterful cheese beginning the moment you slice into it and see that great burst of yellow pate. The texture the balance the surprise the lingering complexity…oh I do hope that there is some way I can get it shipped to me. With my fingers crossed and great admiration for your achievement.
I bought Barkham Blue for the very first time today as I wanted something new to try. I got home and opened it straight away as I am a massive cheese lover…and boy I was not disappointed!!! This is one of the nicest, creamiest cheeses I have eaten in a long while. This cheese will be in my fridge and cheese platters always! Also I will be in touch for my cheese wedding cake as I MUST have Barkham Blue! Thank you for producing such a wonderful cheese.
My uncle brings some of your Barkham Blue to the family Christmas dinner at our house every year. It is the most delicious blue cheese I have ever tasted! We all love it and it’s become one of our family Christmas traditions.
Just finished some of your Barkham Blue cheese which I got from the cotswold cheese company. It really is fantastic – firm like a Stilton but more yielding and flavoursome with a great creamy finish. I’m very impressed – we’ll done on making such a great cheese. Keep it up! Thanks.
My husband went to Sheeplands Farm Shop in Twyford yesterday and came home with some Barkham Blue. We are both agreed that it is the lovely and the smoothest cheese we have probably ever tasted! I look forward to having it again very soon.
