Leicestershire Handmade Cheese Company is located in Upton, a small hamlet in the South West Leicestershire countryside on a working dairy farm called Sparkenhoe Farm. David and Jo Clarke are dairy farmers whose families have farmed in the area for generations. David manages the 150 head of pedigree Holstein Friesian cows and the 160 followers. The cows are fed on the farm’s lush pastures and calving takes place all year round to keep the milk supply as consistent as possible.

David and Jo started making ‘Sparkenhoe’, a traditional Leicester Cheese in November 2005. They use the milk produced from their own cows and this is pumped straight from the parlour directly into the cheese vat ready to make the cheese.
