Suffolk Blue is a luxuriously creamy lightly blue-veined cheese. It is handmade at Whitegate Farm in Creeting St Mary, Suffolk, alongside East Anglian favourite Suffolk Gold. Here, husband and wife team Katharine and Jason Salisbury, the founders of Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses, have installed a robotic milking system for their herd of Guernsey and Jersey cows. The rich pasteurised milk from these cows gives their cheeses a delightful buttery flavour. Katharine adds Penicillium Roqueforti spores to her Suffolk Blue curds then pierces the cheeses after a week to encourage veining. Summer-made cheeses are often naturally bluer than winter-made ones. Nonetheless, soft and sumptuous Suffolk Blue delivers subtle flavours throughout the year. Read more

Country of Origin
On a beautiful sunny day In May 2018, Clare visited Whitegate Farm, the home of Katherine and Jason Salisbury and their Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses. Katherine and Jason have been at Whitegate Farm since 2008. when they set up their own herd to provide rich, creamy milk to make cheese.
Katherine has three cheeses in her Suffolk Farmhouse range: Suffolk Blue, Suffolk Gold and Suffolk Brie. They are all made from pasteurised milk using vegetarian rennet. Find out more about this cheese making visit on the blog >

I’ve not been able to get Suffolk Blue locally any more - so was pleased that Slate were selling it. I almost jibbed at the high postage cost but couldn’t have been more pleased when it arrived, very quickly and beautifully packed, kept cool and in perfect condition. The best I’ve had. Thank you Slate.
Try it with a chunk of honeydew melon!
