AN award-winning dairy is appealing to the public for help naming its latest cheese.

Parlour Made Artisan Cheese, located at Village Farm Dairy in Mordon, near Sedgefield, uses traditional methods and fresh milk from its own herd to produce handmade cheese.

Mordon Blue, Durham Camembert, Farmhouse White and Mordon Mediterranean are among its most popular varieties.

This spring, the family-run business developed its first red cheese but remains stumped over what to call it.

Carol Peacock, who runs Parlour Made with her husband Neil and 16-year-old son Joe, said: “It is a hard, red cheese with a mature flavour. “

We love coming up with recipe ideas and making the cheese but we struggle when it comes to choosing a name.

“It would have to reflect the brand and the local area.”

Mr and Mrs Peacock set up Parlour Made in 2011, as a means of diversifying the farm that has been in the family for two generations.

Last year, the Mordon Blue, a soft and creamy blue cheese, received a bronze award in the British Cheese Awards.
