Quantity of Waitrose 1 Appleby's Cheshire in trolley 0
When it came to finding a classic Farmhouse Cheshire cheese, there were many contenders, but this stood out immediately. A sumptuously mellow and seriously savoury cheese, it is handmade with milk from Holstein Friesian cows and cloth-wrapped before maturing. It’s from the Appleby family who have been hand-making award-winning cheeses at the Hawkstone Abbey Farm on the edge of the Cheshire Plains North since 1942. And thankfully they are not the type to bend to sudden whims of fashion - when a supermarket came knocking and asked if the Appleby family would begin waxing their cheeses, the response was a firm “no”. Lance and Lucy Appleby bought the farm in 1942 and the family has been making Cheshire cheese since 1952. The daughter and granddaughter of cheesemakers, Lucy remained active in the dairy throughout her life. This passion was passed down to her son Edward and his wife Christine who continue to work the farm. The sumptuously savoury notes will make a fine accompaniment to Burgundy, lighter Pinot Noirs and fruitier, richer styles of Beaujolais.
