• Yorkshire Blue - Shepherds Purse

  • Kilo

Creamy, sweet and mild, Yorkshire Blue is an ideal introduction to blue cheese. With age, the flavour deepens and becomes more complex without compromising the mild creaminess that’s helped make it a national favourite.

Launched in 1995, Yorkshire Blue was the first Shepherds Purse blue cheese, their first cheese made from cow’s milk, and the first blue cheese to be made in Yorkshire for 30 years.

Their multi-award-winning Yorkshire Blue is handmade and matured over eight weeks. Each week, they turn each individual cheese by hand, which helps to achieve the lovely blue veining and even smooth texture.
