Cropwell Blue Stilton 250g – Made by Robin Skailes in Nottinghamshire
Cropwell Bishop Organic Stilton is the ‘king’ of blue cheese and surprisingly Cropwell Bishop is still the only Stilton maker to produce a certified organic Stilton. The organic cows’ milk gives a mellow flavour with the same strong blue veins expected in any Stilton. It is rich and masterful, what is not to love! Like all Cropwell Bishop Stiltons their organic Stilton is matured for 12 weeks.

Pexommier Brie – Made by Sandra & Carl Warburton in Todmorden, Yorkshire
Sandra’s grandfather Garnet Sutcliffe started dairy farming at Pextenement in 1924. His two sons Ronald and Norman later took over and in 1998, Sandra left her job to work on the farm too. In 2008, Sandra’s partner Carl left his career in IT to help set up the Pextenement Cheese Company. The ‘pex’ part of the name is thought to refer to pig farming and ‘tenement’ derives from a time when the farm housed 10 families who worked the land, according to the 1901 census.
Highmoor – Made by Rose Grimmond in Nettlebed, Oxfordshire
Highmoor is a semi-soft, washed rind cheese with brothy and bacony notes from the rind made at the Nettlebed Creamery near Henley by Rose Grimmond. Rose’s family are dairy farmers and the family farm, located 1 mile down the road, provides all the beautiful organic cows’ milk used to make the Nettledbed cheeses. Shape, taste and texture all make Highmoor an interesting addition to any cheese board and given the closeness of the cow to creamery to No2 this is also a great cheese to eat to reduce your food miles and support two local businesses.
