Jo and David Clarke have built an enviable reputation for making the only raw milk, clothbound, farmhouse Red Leicester in the UK. Now their son, Will, has returned to the family farm to take up the challenge of making the UK’s only raw milk Shropshire Blue. Will makes this to the same recipe as his Sparkenhoe Blue, but adds annatto to the milk, just as they do for their Sparkenhoe Red Leicester. This gives the cheese its glorious colour. The paste ranges from a blush, peach tone to a deeper hue next to the blue veins, as the curd begins to break down. The taste is buttery and mellow with a gentle spice to finish.
We unashamedly source, care for and sell the best cheese, because that is what we believe in. Every day of dispatch one of our trained cheesemongers cuts every piece fresh, by hand, and wraps it in our waxed paper. We do this because it is most respectful way to treat this precious food.
