Anne Saxelby Obituary – Death: Anne Saxelby, a vocal advocate for American Cheese for over 15 years has passed away unexpectedly following a coronary heart situation on Saturday. She was 40 years old.
Such a tragic loss. I first heard about Anne Saxelby through this YouTube video where she demonstrates how to cut and serve different types of cheese. Her passion and energy really shine through:

You’ll learn how far she’s come – and what she’s learnt along the way – from her first modest booth for Saxelby Cheesemongers in Essex to launching a specialized American-made cheese business in Chelsea Market today.

Anne Saxelby was a Twig Farm champion. Always had time to shoot the breeze and laugh. Sparkle like Grace Kelly. It was truly an honor to know her a little. Heartfelt condolence to her family and close ones.
