Northumberland

Every mouthful of our cow's milk cheeses 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

About Northumberland

Founded in 1984 by Marc Robertson on Soppit Farm, in Elsdon, we now have a gorgeous little cheese hub in Blagdon. Tucked away down Green Lane in Northumberland, we have a lovely converted granary building, which houses our Dairy, Despatch, our offices, and our very own Cheese Loft Café.

In the dairy, our cheesemakers lovingly handmake 16 farmhouse cheeses. We use cows' milk from the estate less than two miles away, from local Blagdon cows. Our Jersey cow milk comes a single herd from Wheelbirks farm in Stocksfield in Northumberland, our Goats' milk comes from a single herd at the Dolken Dairy in Cumbria, and our Sheep's milk comes from Lancashire. 

Today, we have almost 30 staff, covering all areas of the business. Though Marc has now retired, he still remains close to the business. 

All of our artisan cheese is pasteurised and vegetarian. You can buy cheese online today on our shop pages, or visit our Cheese Loft Cafe, for a truly Northumbrian experience.
