Kirkham's Lancashire


Made by: Graham Kirkham

Milk type: Cow

Milk treatment: Raw

Coagulant type: Animal

Location: Goosnargh, Lancashire

How it tastes: Kirkham's Lancashire is known for its succulent-yet-crumbly texture (referred to by the Kirkham family as a ‘buttery crumble’) and its tangy, bright, full flavour.

Kirkham's Lancashire is a treasure: the last farm house raw-milk Lancashire in the world. It is made by third-generation cheesemaker Graham Kirkham. Starting in the mid-eighties, John Kirkham managed the cows and his wife Ruth made the cheese. Today the mantle has passed to their son Graham, whose partner Kellie and sons Mike and Shaun are also involved in all aspects of the business.
