Cheshire is Britain’s oldest cheeses dating back to Roman times and (disputably) mentioned in the Doomsday Book. 

The Appleby family are one of the true cheese making families of the Great Britain. With Lance and Lucy Appleby awarded MBEs for their services to cheese making in Shropshire, in 2001.  

They officially started making their own cheese in 1952 but have always been involved throughout their early lives.  

Now second and third generation Applebys are involved in the business and are committed to making the cheese by the traditional methods.  It is  Paul Appleby and his wife Sarah now at the helm of this cheese making dynasty.
