Since 1984 Mark Robertson has been making farmhouse cheeses in the heart of Northumberland. The Northumberland Cheese story began in the Rede Valley, where Mark had a small flock of sheep from which he produced a ewe’s milk cheese; Redesdale. It was such a success with the locals that our range expanded to include fine cow’s and goat’s milk cheeses too, and the accolades began to pour in.
In 1996 we moved to a 19th Century granary on the Blagdon Estate, South Northumberland. Here we have the capabilities to marry traditional cheese making craftsmanship with modern best practices. Our knowledge and expertise in the cheese industry has led to a full range of 16 artisan cheeses including our newest innovation; Blagdon Blue.
Come and visit us 27 years on and you will be able to enjoy our Cheese Shop and Tea Room set above our working dairy. Our passionate staff will be on hand to help you find your perfect cheese and serve you a truly cheesy lunch. Or why not join us for a tour of the dairy or book on to one of our popular cheese making days.
Although we have grown you can still rest assured that every mouthful can be traced back to the milk of a single dairy herd on a single farm, it's all part of the Northumberland Cheese Company philosophy.
