Red Fox Cheese is an aged Red Leicester matured for over 16 months

Red Fox is handcrafted using a unique recipe which was developed over many years.

This, along with carefully selected cultures and the skill of our cheese-makers produces an intense and complex blend of sweet and savoury distinctive flavours.

Red Fox is an eye-catching russet-coloured cheese that has a cunningly unexpected crunch. The subtle crunch comes from the naturally occurring calcium lactate crystals, which form as the cheese matures and is the mark of a good cheese.

Matured for over 16 months, Red Fox is an aged Red Leicester. The Red Fox name is no accident, referring to the weather vane that has stood aloft Belton Farm since 1815.

At the same time, with Red Fox being a Red Leicester, a fox was all too fitting a mascot – serving as the key symbol of Leicester and Leicestershire for centuries.

As it happens, everything that we typically associated with foxes applies just as readily to Red Fox. We think of foxes as smooth, cunning and clever, and so is our Red Fox.

You feel the smoothness of Red Fox through its rich, creamy texture, and its unexpected crunch.
The creaminess of the cheese, with a subtle crunch, gives a wonderfully rugged overall mouthfeel that you must experience for yourself.
