APPLEBY SMOKED

From the famous appleby family, well known for their Appleby Cheshire. The Smoked Cheshire cheeses are subtle enough to still taste the provenance but have meaty, toasty flavours that are upfront and moreish.

The ethos behind the appleby farm and make our produce today is very much influenced by Paul’s grandparents Lance and Lucy Appleby. Lucy came from a line of Cheshire cheesemaking matriarchs, cheesemaking being a female role, and once she and Lance had married and settled at Hawkstone Abbey Farm in 1952 they founded Appleby’s in the stables next to the farmhouse kitchen. There it has stayed as one of the last ‘farmhouse’ cheese dairy’s left.
This heritage is such an intrinsic part of way they do things, from the way they farm to the way they think about maturation. Here in our traditional dairy we make ‘edible heritage’ in a way that still learns from Lucy’s incredible cheese make notes and has an exciting future influenced by those same traditions and values. Master cheesemaker Gary worked with Lucy and now shares his knowledge with our brilliant dairy team, Neil, who makes our delicious whey butter, and John in the maturation rooms.
