The last remaining Lancashire cheese, a slice of British cheesemaking history. Read more
Why we love this
Creamy and crumbly, this raw milk farmhouse Lancashire cheese is one of the very finest artisan cheeses made in the British isles.
In 1939 there were 202 farmhouse producers of Lancashire. Today, only the Kirkham's remains, this cheese is a slice of British history. Third generation cheesemaker Graham Kirkham makes this fabulous Lancashire cheese in the traditional way, mixing together curds from several days milkings. It is time-consuming, but all this effort yields great rewards.
Kirkham's Lancashire is light, bright with a yoghurt-like tang. It works wonderfully paired with pickles or a fruity chutney.
This is farmhouse Lancashire at its best.
