This is the very beautiful small truckle of Appleby Cheshire. Around 1kg, wrapped in cheese cloth, it will keep maturing until you are ready to eat it. The perfect gift.
The Appleby family have been farming at Hawkstone Abbey Farm, North Shropshire since 1942, when Lance and Lucy Appleby bought the farm. Lucy began making Cheshire cheese in 1952. The daughter and granddaughter of cheesemakers, she remained active in the dairy throughout her life. In 1982, Mr and Mrs Appleby, along with their son Edward and his wife Christine, refused to give in to pressure from supermarkets to begin waxing their cheeses.
