Teesdale Blue

A handmade semi-soft cheese. It has a top note of cream, complemented by the deep rich blue 

undertone. Mild when young but as it matures it develops a strong ripe taste!

Barney Brie

Our farmhouse brie is a representation of our region. We don’t use cultures to create the usual 

white coat. Instead, our cheese develops a natural rind influenced by the flora and fauna of 

Teesdale, making this a unique cheese with an interesting new look. Closest Brie would perhaps 

be a Loire Valley Brie.


Doris is our first move from semi-soft cheese. This semi-hard cheese has a crumbly interior like a 

crumbly dale’s type cheese in texture, with a buttery edge finished off with our signature unique 


Allison’s Garlic

Allison’s garlic is a young fresh cheese made with mulberry milk from the family farm
