“Please Stand Tall & Welcome The Amazing Team From”Sandhams Cheese
Located in the heart of rural Lancashire, JJ Sandham’s is one of Britain’s most successful independent cheese makers.
With a heritage in cheese making stretching back more than 80 years combined with an innovative approach to new and exciting flavours the team at Sandham’s hold an eye for detail, a flavour approach which is unique and a passion for all things cheese which would be hard to beat.
Cheesemaking in Lancashire can be traced back as far as the 12th Century when in 1199 King John granted Preston a Royal Charter to host an annual cheese fair.
Through the centuries that followed cheese production in Lancashire continued to grow with records from the 1300s showing Lancashire cheese being shipped to London from Liverpool.
he style of this cheese would bear little resemblance to today’s styles of Lancashire but from around the 1790s, the Lancashire cheese recipe began to resemble something similar to Lancashire Tasty and Creamy that we all love to this day.
We recently spent an afternoon at Sandham’s and it was fantastic to see the traditional methods of cheese making still used to this day to create some of the Norths finest cheeses.
