Grandma Singleton’s Parlick Fell Ewes Milk Cheese, made in Longridge, has won first prize for sheep’s milk cheese and the prestigious Prince of Wales Award for Speciality Cheese at the Great Yorkshire Show.

This is a new award for outstanding quality, launched to mark the 10th anniversary of the Great Yorkshire Cheese and Dairy Show, so Grandma Singleton’s is the first recipient of this fabulous award.

The Prince of Wales Award for Outstanding Quality is approved by HRH The Prince of Wales, Patron of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society and means Grandma Singletons will now be able to display a specially designed logo on their Parlick Fell Cheese to mark it as outstanding.

This year, Singleton’s Dairy, in Longridge, has re-launched its full range of over 30 hand-made cheeses as Grandma Singletons, to honour the founder of the company. Grandma Singleton started making cheese on her Longridge farm in 1934. Today her great-granddaughter carries on the tradition and the cheese is still made grandma’s way, using her original recipe, which is a closely guarded secret.

Tilly Carefoot, owner of Grandma Singleton’s and grea-granddaughter of the founder said, “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award, especially in the year we are re-launching all our hand-made cheeses as Grandma Singleton’s. Ewes milk cheese is a delicious, fresh alternative to the more usual cow’s milk cheese which we also make, and I would recommend any cheese lover to try some Parlick Fell.”

Parlick Fell Ewes Milk is available in Lancashire in selected Salisbury’s and all good delicatessens.
