Sparkenhoe, made by David and Jo Clarke, is England's only farm made unpasteurised Red Leicester cheese. It's the first to be produced on Sparkenhoe Farm since 1875. Leicester cheese was made on Sparkenhoe Farm by Mr George Chapman in 1745 and by his family until 1875. He was quoted by Robert Bakewell, a famous breeder of the time, to have had ‘one of the best herds of longhorns known anywhere, so it felt very fitting to add this cheese to our dairy section. David and Jo decided to revive the tradition of cheese-making on the farm after they discovered this. The cheese itself is creamy and mellow, with a slightly flakey texture. The addition of natural annatto gives the cheese its deep orange-red colour of a traditional Red Leicester cheese, a true revival of a fabulous cheese, nutty, sweet with a citrus finish. Cloth bound and matured for 6 months on beech shelves. Made with from the milk of David and Jo's pedigree Holstein-Friesian cattle. Available in a selection of sizes, please choose from the drop down list
