Barkham Blue is hand made by the artisan cheese makers Sandy and Andy Rose of Two Hoots. Two Hoots is a small family business, named after two orphaned owls the couple took in and located in the village of Barkham on the Hampshire/Berkshire border. This is a handmade cheeses, made in the traditional way using the pasteurised milk from Channel Island breeds of cows. Sandy and Andy Rose have been making cheese since 2003 and their cheeses have won a succession of awards. They decided to use Jersey and Guernsey cows as Sandy grew up on her mum and dad’s dairy farm in Shurlock Row near Twyford. To use Channel Island breeds was an unusual decision as their milk is particularly rich and isn’t often used for Blue cheeses as the richness can go sour with blue veining
