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.
