About Our Supplier
Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire Cheese
Ruth Kirkham began making her now famous Lancashire cheese in 1978 after her mother retired and passed down the family recipe and her cheesemaking knowledge.
From humble beginnings in a converted piggery, Ruth and John Kirkham have produced the cheese on their farm ever since. They were joined by their son, Graham, and in 2008 he oversaw a move to a more modern dairy facility, with a state of the art milking parlour and five- star accommodation for their 100 strong herd of cows.
