Barlocco Blue (500g)
This is a moderately strong creamy blue cheese, slightly punchier than Fleet Valley Blue. It’s made from pasteurised milk, and is very finely veined, giving a smooth, consistent flavour throughout.
Barlocco Blue was introduced in early 2020 and it has changed slightly as our cheesemakers have perfected their approach. The photos in this listing show a well-veined early batch, as well as a young wedge of one of our later batches. The main difference you'll notice is that our new batches have a nicely formed rind on them, and the blue veins will continue to develop as the cheese matures.
For more information on how Barlocco Blue has changed, read our blog.
The name is based on Barlocco island, a small, rocky island just off the coast near our farm.
This cheese is made with pasturised milk from our cow with calf organic dairy farm. Cheese is cut to order to maximise shelf life. This cheese has a best before date of three weeks after cutting.

Your cheese order will be delivered in Woolcool bags, a system of eco-friendly insulated packaging made from sheep’s wool. These special cool bags keep our cheeses below 5oC for 48 hours so that they reach you perfectly chilled and ready to enjoy. Cheeses are sent using a next day delivery courier service, however occasionally delivery can be delayed. This is happening more frequently during the coronavirus crisis and so we cannot guarantee delivery on your requested date. Please be reassured that our insulated packaging and chill packs have been designed to accommodate a 48 hour delivery window. Therefore, if you receive your cheese a day later than expected, the cheese will be absolutely fine. The Sorba-freeze ice packs we use are reusable, they can be dehydrated (on a radiator) and rehydrated with water and refrozen.
