We take a real pride in our all our cheese which have been handmade on Belton Farm, using local milk, since the early 1800s.”

Cheshire Cheese has a long history and is Britain’s oldest cheese, it even has a mention in the Domesday Book. The cheese is extremely versatile and is a delicious healthy alternative to Feta as it has a third less salt and is fabulous crumbled over a salad, or as a snack with fruit.
