Produced locally by Shephards Purse, Harrogate blue was released in 2012. The family business have been farming for 5 generations and cheesemaking for 2. They value themselves on principles and perfectionism, despite such rapid growth they continue to handcraft in small batches and don’t plan on changing, with the quality of cheese being their primary aim. Harrogate Blue went from production to a customer favourite in a matter of days and medal winner in a matter of weeks. It has gone on to win multiple Gold and Silver medals both domestically and internationally.
