Cornish Cheese Company Ltd, Cornwall
Philip and Carol Stansfield moved to Cornwall from Cheshire in 1994. They bought Knowle Farm and a dairy herd and diversfified into cheese-making in 2001 as the price of milk kept falling. After careful research they decided to concentrate on a soft, mild and creamy soft blue cheese and almost immediately found their niche with Cornish Blue. They have recently bought the land and herd from neighbouring Lynher Cheese Company, keep winning awards and are going from strength to strength.
