Barkham Blue

bb
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

bb
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.

Rosethorn Blue

rb
Rosethorn Blue is a lovely soft textured creamy blue cheese made with Friesian cow’s milk. It is gentle on the palate but becomes stronger and softer with age. Mould ripened with an attractive blue grey rind. Available in 1kg rounds.

Our granddaughter Katie just loves cheese. The thing is, she never sees much of it now. My wife’s sister Julie from London brings us some of your cheese when she visits us. Katie always wants some when she visits because she loves cheese so much. We can’t say no without bucket loads of tears from her. The thing is that dad, who is 84, has come to live with us and he has acquired a taste for it and he eats nearly all of it. (We try to say no to him but he also gives us bucket loads of tears!) It’s like a war zone in our house. Katie on one side and dad on the other. Pistols at dawn. My wife and I rarely get any. Still, we are glad that we can please Katie (sometimes) and also please dad (who is a greedy old so and so). I would ask Julie to bring more but I know where it will end up. All in dad’s stomach! Or in Katie’s! Thank you very much for delicious cheese. In dad’s words, “the best thing since sliced bread”! (Or that could be on sliced bread!)
