Francis and Little Colonel.

Francis, was a new offering in 2012 and has come to being, as a result of a joint venture between James McCall and Lyburn cheese, when Paul Thomas was with us. Based on Stoney Cross, this is a washed rind cheese. The characteristics of Stoney Cross are retained with the eyes, the silky smooth and buttery paste, and now a very pink and sticky rind. They can either come as a 1kg, the normal size, or on request a 3kg wheel like Stoney Cross. Little Colonel being much smaller at 200gms.

This cheese achieved a Silver at the World Cheese Awards in 2011 and now has a Gold at the 2012 British Cheese Awards, and then went on to take Best New Cheese. For 2013, Francis has consolidated its position in the Washed rind market with a Gold, and then Best Semi Soft, at the British Cheese Awards 2013.
