Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire is an unpasteurised cow’s milk cheese, handmade by Graham Kirkham, third-generation cheesemaker and his team. This farmhouse cheese is moist, rich and creamy, with a ‘buttery crumble’ and a fluffy, light consistency that melts in the mouth.
The cheeses’ flavours are sharp and citrusy, with a lingering Lancashire tang. Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire is usually matured for 2-3 months but can be prolonged for up to 6 months by which time it becomes almost softly spreadable. An excellent melting cheese that progresses to a soft, silky, custard-like texture when cooked. This is lovely grilled on toast.
Generally recognised as one of the best Lancashire cheeses on the market.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
