Delicious Binsey Red – a young and nutty Red Leicester-style cheese with a long lasting flavour.

We’ve named our Red Leicester-style cheese after Binsey, the northernmost of the ‘Wainwrights’ Lake District fells and the closest to Park House Farm.
Binsey Red is a firm cheese well-suited to slicing and grating or just enjoying a generous chunk on your favourite cracker.
The sweet, nutty long-lasting flavour of Binsey Red lends itself well to pairing with chutneys and pickles, and it will happily hold its own alongside strong companions such as spicy chilli or raw onion – as you can probably gather, we consider it a prime candidate for inclusion in a classic ploughman’s lunch!
Like all our cheeses, it is made here in the Park House Farm dairy using only fresh organic milk from our Jersey Friesian herd and matured in whole wheels in our cold storage barn before being cut to order.
Torpenhow Binsey Red is available as 200g wedges. Larger sizes including entire wheels of Binsey Red are available for trade customers, cheesemongers and affineurs.
Did you know? Our organic milk changes with the seasons as it depends on which pasture our lovely cows graze the day before. This means that each handmade cheese is unique, with a slightly varied background taste and texture depending which batch is ready.
