Highland Fine Cheeses Highland Fine Cheeses

With a strong cheese history running through the family, you can still find the Stone family firmly behind the reigns of Highland Fine Cheeses. In 1994 Rory joined mum, Susannah, and his older brother in the family business of cheese-making, and has headed up the company ever since.

Now the company is focused on mould ripened cheese with brie, blue and washed rind styles. The milk comes from three farms, Sibster just west of Wick, Thrumster with a herd of organic Jersey cows and Rootfield on the Black Isle which is converting to Ayrshire cows.

Their product range includes the traditional Crowdie, Black Crowdie, Caboc, Morangie and Highland Brie, Strathdon Blue, Blue Murder, Fat Cow and Minger.
