Stichelton blue cheese has deliciously complex flavours that change with the seasons and develop with age. The texture is creamy and buttery. Spicy notes come through from the blueing which sit alongside nutty, savoury and milky, sweet flavours.

Paxton & Whitfield have been buying directly from Stichelton’s cheesemaker Joe Schneider for over 22 years. Joe was recently interviewed for Paxton’s podcast and he said: “I like making cheese. I have other people that work with me that can make a vat of cheese, but I make 85-90% percent of the vats. That is what motivates me. I don't want to run a business where I just sit at a desk and receive reports about the yield.”  

Joe works from a purpose built dairy at Collingthwaite Farm on the Welbeck Estate on the northern borders of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire and all the milk comes from the herd of 150 Friesian-Holstein cows there. 

The name Stichelton is taken from the original name of the village of Stilton, used in the 13th Century Lincoln Rolls. 

Cheese weights ordered in multiple quantities are always cut as one large piece, unless otherwise requested in the delivery notes section of checkout
