Started in 2001 Norbury Blue & Dirty Vicar soon became a cheese's noted locally for their distinct taste and flavour which is derived our family run closed herd of fresian cows whom have a rich and diverse diet, also which adds to the unique flavour is the fact that all the flavours are not cooked out with the commonly used pasteurisation process.
The closed herd of Fresian cows Graze on the lush meadow grasses at the foot of the South Downs by the Rother Valley. The cows roam freely Spring through to Autumn as of January 2018 are now being milked by robots, meaning that the cows are free to get milked when it suits them, producing a more relaxing atmosphere and ultimately happier cows!
The milk is collected from the farm and delivered to the cheese making dairy 45 minutes away where it is then pumped into a 900 litre vat and heated. The moulds are then loaded by hand and salted washed and transferred into the maturing room where they stay for around 4 weeks. When the test results are returned the cheese is ready to be marketed.
Norbury Park Farm Cheese Company Ltd is a small family run company and we pride ourselves in our handmade artisan product and our non commercial attitude towards our much loved cheese that cannot be found in any supermarket.
That's why you will always find Neil and Michaela put quality before profit.
