Churnton was developed by The Cheese Company (now part of ARLA Foods) in the 1990's and was billed as a cross between Cheddar and Cheshire.

It is a mature cheese with a creamy, slightly open texture and predominantly sweet yet intense flavour. A cheese for all the family, it can be sliced, diced, grated or eaten on its own. Churnton is also ideal when used for cooking. Production has temporarily ceased.
