Looking for a way to diversify their farm business and add value to their own milk, Philip and Carol Stansfield spotted the gap in the market for a young, blue cheese that could compete with imported blue cheeses. Designed to be eaten as a young cheese, Cornish Blue is a very different product from traditional English blue cheeses such as Stilton or Dorset Blue.

Recognising that the climate and location of their farm were ideal for artisan cheesemaking and would give Cornish Blue its unique taste and character, the Stansfields started production on a small scale in 2001. Since then they have scooped numerous prizes including the most prestigious prize of all - Champion Cheese at the World Cheese Awards in 2010. In the same year Cornish Blue was the Champion Cheese at The Royal Bath & West Show.
