Sparkenhoe Red Leicester

Net Weight: 300g

Product Code: CHSL

Sparkenhoe is made in a totally authentic way using their own unpasteurised milk to an old recipe discovered by Jo and David Clarke. [more...]

The cheeses are bound in cloth and lard and matured for 4½ months to give this truly authentic red Leicester a beautifully nutty taste. Many say it is the best cheese of its type in the country and I for one agree with them.

Leicestershire Handmade Cheese Company is located in Upton, a small hamlet in the South West Leicestershire countryside on a working dairy farm called Sparkenhoe Farm. David and Jo Clarke are dairy farmers whose families have farmed in the area for generations. Their 150 pedigree Holstein Friesian cows are fed on the farm’s lush pastures and calving takes place all year round to keep the milk supply as consistent as possible.

Not suitable for vegetarians.

Store in the refrigerator <5oC.
