A top-class family-run dairy who, since 1952, have been making what is considered to be the best Cheshire Cheese. They also make this in a smoked version and Appleby's Double Gloucester.
This is made with both morning and evening unpasteurised milk from their herd of Friesian cattle, which produces around 4,000 litres of milk a day, at Hawkstone Abbey Farm, Weston-Under-Redcastle, Shropshire, SY4 5LN.
Although not in Cheshire, the farm benefits from its richness in salt from a band that covers much of Cheshire, parts of Lancashire, Staffordshire and Shropshire and this gives the cheese special characteristics.
