    Description

    A traditional cloth bound Cheshire cheese that matures to a delightful crumbly texture and offers a rich, clean flavour in the mouth.

    The texture of Cheshire Appleby cheese is moist and crumbly. The flavour is clean and zesty on the tongue followed by a rich mouth-watering finish, which continues to linger. Appleby's Cheshire goes particularly well with fruit cake, figs or dates, as the acidity complements the sweetness of the fruit. Our Fig Balls are the perfect match for Appleby's Cheshire cheese.

    Awarded Gold at The World Cheese Awards 2019. Appleby's Cheshire won the Daresbury Cup for the best coloured Cheshire at the International Cheese Awards Nantwich Show 2017. Appleby's Cheshire won Gold in the category of 'Farmhouse/Traditional Cheshire Cheese Coloured at the International Cheese Awards Nantwich Show 2017

    The unique quality of Cheshire cheese is said to emanate from the pastures which lie over the heavy salt deposits underlying the area of the Cheshire / Shropshire border around Whitchurch and Nantwich. The cattle grazing there have been found to have an unusually high salt content in their milk and this quality is carried through in the resulting cheese. Our example of the cheese is Appleby's Cheshire. Farming and cheesemaking have been a way of life for the Appleby family for several generations. The cheesemaking process hasn't changed much since Appleby's cheese was first made at Hawkstone Abbey Farm in 1952 and the Appleby family are the only remaining producers of real calico bound traditional farm Cheshire cheese; made from their own unpasteurised milk and then matured on the farm.

    Hawkstone Abbey Farm is a family-run dairy farm where the focus is on producing milk to make Appleby's cheese. The approach to farming balances milk production with careful stewardship of the surrounding countryside. The combination of fine pastures, quality unpasteurised milk, the skill of the cheesemaker and the art of maturing gives Appleby's cheese its unique texture and flavour. The family work closely with Garry Gray, a dedicated cheesemaker, highly experienced and skilled in the art of cheesemaking. The ingredients simply consist of unpasteurised milk, starter culture, rennet, salt and annatto. A committed team work with quality ingredients and carefully monitor timing, temperature and acidity to create a consistently high quality product. Expertise is essential to work with constant variations during the seasons which have subtly impact the core ingredient; Appleby's milk.
