Yorkshire Blue

by Shepherds Purse



Creamy, sweet and mild, Yorkshire Blue is an ideal introduction to blue cheese. With age, the flavour deepens and becomes more complex without compromising the mild creaminess that’s helped make it a national favourite.

Launched in 1995, Yorkshire Blue was Shepherds Purse’s first blue cheese, our first cheese made from cow’s milk, and the first blue cheese to be made in Yorkshire for 30 years.

The multi-award-winning Yorkshire Blue is handmade and matured over eight weeks. Each week, they turn each individual cheese by hand, which helps to achieve the lovely blue veining and even smooth texture.

Yorkshire Blue is mild, soft, creamy and blue veined. Made from Yorkshire cows’ milk, this wonderful cheese is sweet and buttery with no sharp bite.


We began Shepherds Purse Artisan Cheeses in the late 1980’s after our Mum, Judy Bell, discovered her passion and talent for cheese making as she set out on a mission to create quality dairy alternatives for cow’s milk allergy sufferers.
