Farmers and Cheesemakers

Farming and cheesemaking have been a way of life for the Appleby family for several generations. The cheesmaking has changed little since Appleby’s cheese was first made at Hawkstone Abbey Farm in 1952.

Looking after the land

Hawkstone Abbey Farm is a family-run dairy farm where the focus is on producing milk to make Appleby’s cheese. The approach to farming balances milk production with careful stewardship of the surrounding countryside.
