A gorgeous artisan cheese from the makers of St Jude and St Cera - Julie Cheyney and her assistant cheesemaker Blake Bowden. 

Blake, originally from Australia, named the cheese after the town where his family lived for 25 years, located at the easternmost point of the continent. After working with cheese in the United States and joining St. Jude Cheese in 2018, Blake was inspired to create a semi-soft cheese in the style of Saint Nectaire, which he had tried during a trip to Auvergne.

St. Helena is made using the high-quality, raw milk from the same Montbeliarde herd that produces Baron Bigod at Fen Farm Dairy. With support from Julie Cheyney, the mastermind behind St. Jude and St. Cera, Blake was able to develop St. Helena during the pandemic and bring it to market.

Milky, buttery and sweet with just a hint of tanginess at the finish, St Helena is a fabulous addition to any sophisticated cheeseboard or a simple homemade lunch. 

Enjoy this wonderful cheese with a glad of medium bodied white wine or a light red wine.
