Kentish Blue cheese

Kentish Blue is an unpasteurised blue cheese, handmade by Steve and Karen Reynolds on their family run dairy farm just outside Staplehurst, in the heart of the Kent countryside.

The milk is only from their own farm assured, closed herd of Holstein Friesian cows to produce the cheese. The milk travels a mere 20 metres from the milking parlour to the purpose built cheese dairy, and as it is used immediately, there is no need for it to be cooled for storage or reheated before cheesemaking begins. The cheese is made in the traditional way, with vegetarian rennet, and turned regularly to allow even distribution of moisture and blue veining. It is pierced by hand to allow the blue to develop and then matured for around three months.
