In 1939 there were 202 Farmhouse producers of Lancashire, today only the Kirkhams remain. Graham Kirkham is the 3rd generation to make traditional raw milk Lancashire, taught by his mother who in turn was taught by her Mother. Three generations of the family continue to make the cheese, Graham, his Mum Ruth and his sons make cheese daily using curds combined from several days of milking from their herd of 100 cows.
Kirkhams’s Lancashire is then cloth-bound in the traditional way and ‘buttered up’ (enclosing the cheese in a buttered cloth) allowing it to breathe as it matures for 3-6 months
