Four fabulous farmhouse cheeses
Recent resurgence in cheese making has seen some fabulously brilliant British cheeses come to prominence.
This selection includes four of the finest, including a buttery, rich Lancashire cheese, oozing Tunworth Camembert, the nutty aged-Summerfield (that will give Comté a run for it’s money), and Stichelton, one of Britain’s most outstanding blue cheeses.

More about this
This cheese selection box includes:
Kirkham’s Lancashire. Unpasteurised cows’ cheese. 250g.
Third-generation Lancashire-maker Graham still follows the traditional two-day curd method, giving a buttery, yoghurty flavour with a fluffy and light texture that melts in the mouth. These Kirkham’s are specially selected for The Courtyard Dairy for a greater depth of flavour.
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g. An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy select only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour. Winner: Supreme Champion (British Cheese Awards 2013 & 2006).
Summer Field. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic, vegetarian. 250g.
Alastair Pearson learnt his cheese-making trade abroad, and has brought to Yorkshire a little touch of the Alps. Following an Alpine recipe, Summer Field tastes like a 12-month-old Comté, with toffee and butterscotch flavours and a nutty finish. The milk comes from Botton Village’s 46 biodynamically-farmed Dairy Shorthorn cows.
Stichelton. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Hand-ladled and made to a traditional Stilton recipe but with unpasteurised milk, Stichelton is creamy and nutty with a rich yet gentle blue note.
