Sage Derby (pronounced "dahr-bee”) is a mild, mottled green, semi-hard cheese with a hint of garden sage running throughout. The first production began in the seventeenth century in England. Sage was added as a highly prized herb, known for it's health giving properties.
Sage Derby was only made for festive occasions such as harvest and Christmas, but now it is available all year round.
Singleton’s Dairy began in 1934 when Robert and his wife Duillia Singleton incorporated the company to purchase milk from neighboring farms. Prior to that time they had been producing fine Lancashire cheese from their own cow’s milk at Cromblehome Farm on Beacon Fell in rural Lancashire.
