Made by good a friend and fellow Artisan cheesemaker Joe Schneider, at Collingthwaite Farm on the wellbeck estate in Nottingham.
Stichelton is a raw milk blue cheese with a creamy, Toasty & nutty flavour with a rich but gentle blue note.
Joe and Neal's Yard Dairy founder Randolph Hodgson set out to resurrect a traditional unpasteurised blue cheese and in 2006 Stichelton (the old anglo-saxon name for the village of stilton) was born, the cheese is not allowed to be called stilton as it is made using raw milk.
Joe and his team make the cheese by hand and produce aroung 30 cheeses a day, using the mornings milk from the farms herd.
