Suffolk Blue

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. More information (including allergens) >

Absolutely delicious

This cheese is amazing. It's medium strength blue cheese and so creamy. Make sure you leave it out out of the fridge for at least an hour before you eat it to make the most of its creaminess and texture.

Delicious soft cheese

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.
