World Champion Cheese produced on the Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.
Cornish Blue has been produced on the Stansfield’s farm on Bodmin Moor since 2001. At that time milk prices had collapsed and dairy farmers were facing a struggle to survive. In the search for a new revenue stream, Phillip and Carol Stansfield starting thinking about making cheese and noticed that there was no blue cheese being made in Cornwall. They turned a former bottling plant at the end of the milking parlour into a cheese production facility and Cornish Blue was on its way. Being just on the edge of Bodmin Moor, the Stansfield farm is ideally placed for cheese making as the very moist climate makes for good pasture which is important for the milk.
