Cow Close Farm

Cow Close Farm is set in an idyllic location beneath Stanage Edge in the Peak District village of Hathersage.

The cheesemakers are a husband and wife team, James and Sophie Summerlin.

Stanage Millstone is a bloomy rind pasteurised cow’s milk cheese, and has only been on the market since May 2016.

The milk is sourced from a single herd that are robotically milked on a neighbouring farm.

Each cheese is millstone shaped, mimicking the millstones that dot the farmland and surrounding Stanage/North Lees Estate.

Stanage Millstone is very versatile, and is regularly used in cooking.

We do not have a shop at the farm but our cheese is currently stocked in a range of high end deli, restaurants and being used by wedding caterers.
