Colston Bassett and District Dairy Ltd

Colston Bassett and District Dairy Ltd

The dairy has been making outstanding cheese for 103 years and the farming co-operative which was first established in 1913, is still in operation. It was a very special year in the history of Colston Bassett Dairy – the home of traditional Stilton cheese and Shropshire Blue cheese.

The Dairy started following the vision of a local doctor, Dr William Windley, in 1913 - and now today it is still making cheese in the traditional way using milk from local farms – all within 1.5 miles of our dairy in the Vale of Belvoir on the Nottinghamshire/ Leicestershire border.

The Dairy produces Stilton and also the award-winning Shropshire Blue cheese. Both cheeses are created by a highly skilled, dedicated and experienced team – using the recipe handed down by generations. Colston Bassett is enjoyed around the world by lovers of fine cheese.

Colston Bassett Dairy has a long history of supplying quality specialist cheese shops, delicatessens in the UK, America and across Europe.
