Based in the rolling hills of Lancashire, traditional Lancashire cheese is the heart and soul of Grandma Singletons.

All our cheeses are made to exacting standards, using tried and tested techniques of manufacture, utilising only local Bowland milk which is sourced from within ten miles of the factory. This rich milk is essential for creating the leading brand of Lancashire cheese in the UK, Grandma Singletons Famously Strong Lancashire.

Grandma’s Premium Range is ever expanding too. Our latest addition is a range of aged sheep's milk cheese, Parlick Fell, named after the slopes on which the local sheep graze. The leading brand of UK sheep’s milk, Parlick Fell is aged to perfection and the new season cheeses are released in March each year.

The regional cheeses of England and Wales are some of the oldest known cheese varieties in the world. Each has their own distinct characteristics, recipes and flavours. From the classically crumbly Lancashire, to Double Gloucester’s mellow but firm bodied texture, each one has its own story to tell.

Our skilled cheesemakers combine our locally sourced milk with generations old recipes to produce stunning cheeses with unique flavours - whether it’s a russet coloured Red Leicester or the honeyed tones of Wensleydale.

Many of these cheese varieties are also used at Grandma Singletons to produce our prize winning blended dessert and savoury cheese varieties.

Every single batch of cheese is individually and independently graded for quality before being despatched around the world.
