Button Mill

A bright, unbelievably soft little cheese that has a truly unique rind and delicate flavours that make it dangerously moreish. The unique cocktail of cultures results in each cheese behaving and maturing in a truly unique way that just grows more and more delicious with each day.

Available in: 150g Round

Sunday Best

This authentic farmhouse Lancashire cheese is lovingly hand made by our Cheesemakers. It's 50 year old family recipe comes from Jean, a 2nd Generation Cheesemaker here at Butlers Farmhouse Cheeses. Sunday Best takes 48 hours to make, and is then aged for a further 18 months.

Available in: 250g Wedge

Kidderton Ash

Kidderton Ash is a handcrafted goat’s cheese log, rolled in ash prior to maturing.

The ash helps a unique rind develop around the cheese, which gives it a contrasted, speckled appearance and helps contain a constantly developing flavour.

Available in: 150g Log

Stratford Blue

A dreamy blue cheese, smooth in texture and with a distinctive taste.

The blue bite of Stratford Blue develops with warmth, but soon mellows in a sea of creaminess, making this cheese truly unique and unbelievably moreish.

Available in: 150g Wedge, Whole Wheel.

Ravens Oak

A creamy white, soft goat's cheese made with milk from our family herd.

Ravens Oak goat's cheese has a subtle nutty flavour reminiscent of almonds, which develop as the cheese naturally matures.

Beacon Blue was the winner of the Best British Blue at the Virtual Cheese Awards 2020.

Available in: 150g Wedge, Whole Wheel.
