Martin Moyden started making cheese in 2005, and soon created this interesting, rich blue, using local raw milk from the Shropshire plain.

Made by Martin & Beth Moyden, in Market Drayton, Shropshire, England.

More about this

Starting out as a dairy farmer, Martin Moyden loved listening to his Grandma as she told tales of her cheese-making days.  Deciding in 2005 to have a go at it himself, Moyden’s Handmade Cheese was born!

Now Martin and his wife, Beth, have given up farming solely to focus on making cheese.  Still sourcing milk from a single herd on a nearby farm in the Shropshire plains, they make a range of cheeses of which their original and most-well known, Wrekin Blue, still stands out as the finest.

A French recipe, with a British twist, it is supple in texture, with open pockets in which the blue forms.  Wrekin Blue is then matured traditionally until it develops a full flavour and blue-bite, at about three months old.

This product will have two weeks shelf life from the date of delivery.  Conveniently, at checkout you can choose a delivery date even well in the future if you would like your cheese delivering for a specific event.
