Mrs Temples Binham Blue is hand-produced on Copys Green Farm, at Wighton, on the Holkham Estate by Catherine Temple. The milk comes from her own herd of Brown Swiss and Holstein Friesian cattle that graze near Wells-next-the-Sea, in North Norfolk. Catherine Temple is a cheesemaker who prides herself on high standards of animal welfare. Copy’s Green Farm is so conscious of their animals and environment that they are a leading cheesemaker in responsible and sustainable farming, ensuring that their cattle food is mostly produced on the farm and is fully traceable from grass meadows through to the customer. Not only that but their cheese production is fuelled by the energy created on the farm using biomass technology. The farm’s waste is utilised back into fertilising the land, and they try to use minimal packaging for their goods.
Mrs Temples Binham Blue is a vegetarian cheese made using pasteurised milk. The cheese is soft with a pale yellow interior, a creamy texture and a tangy taste. The cheese produces a natural crust and is full flavoured – though not overpowering, with a good bite on the finish. Not as strong as a stilton, this blue sits comfortably in the mild to medium range and is a great crowd-pleaser. Delicious paired with tangy accompaniments like pickles and marmalade.
An award-winning cheese that is famous across East Anglia.
