A gold award-winning blue cheese, Blacksticks Blue is the original contemporary farmhouse blue cheese. Made with love, using traditional handmade methods, with rich milk produced by the herds of our family and friends all within a 10km radius of our Lancashire family dairy.

It is crafted in open vats, then poured into individual moulds, turned by hand and matured under the watchful eyes of our cheese experts.

Blacksticks Blue has proudly won a Gold Star at the Great Taste Awards 2021 and a Silver Award for Best Cheese made by a novice cheesemaker at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards 2021.

The orange comes from Annatto which is created from the seeds of the achiote tree. Not only does it give Blacksticks Blue a great all year round tan, it adds a subtle flavour that simply doesn't exist without it.

As comfortable on a cheeseboard as it is in a sandwich, Blacksticks Blue is truly versatile. We pair it with sweet or sharp flavours to create a real contrast. It can be melted and often switched with something like cheddar for more depth and complex flavour.

Yes! It safe to eat and adds to the flavour. Personally, it's one of our favourite parts...

All of our cheeses are handmade in our Farmhouse Dairy in rural Lancashire. The surrounding fields are grazed by the cows who provide our milk, many of whom are looked after by extended family. Our goat's milk comes from just down the road. We believe Lancashire and our surrounding area in particular make such a big difference to the quality of our cheese, alongside, of course the skill and experience of our wonderful team of cheesemakers.
