Digital Days Out Saturday 18th April: Why Yorkshire Wensleydale crumbles!

Creamy, crumbly and full of flavour…we’ve been handcrafting delicious Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese for generations.

The secret to the popularity of this classic cheese?

A distinctive crumbly texture, steeped in history and years of knowledge, skill and craftsmanship, passed down through generations of expert cheese-makers that is now widely celebrated.

Achieving the perfect crumble to our award-winning Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese requires a closely guarded, time-honoured recipe that only a privileged few get their hands on.

Due to its unique structure, Yorkshire Wensleydale doesn’t melt like other cheese when cooked, it retains its wonderful texture and flavour. That’s why this iconic cheese lends itself so nicely to adding that special touch to recipes – crumbled into a warm summer greens salad and enjoyed in the garden or crumbled onto a delicious tart to take to a picnic. It really is a cheese perfect for a whole host of special occasions.

    Just to say keep up the good work by letting people know that even in these times of lockdown you are still able to carry on producing and selling your produce.
    In the last 2 weeks we ordered 2 hampers to be sent to our son and daughter as Easter gifts, and today we had a delivery from you which was packed including a cool pack to keep the cheeses fresh and cool.
    We live in the midlands but come up to stay in a cottage each year for a holiday in June and always come to the Creamery, not only to buy cheese and other goodies but to enjoy the coffee shop and restaurant so we will visit again as soon as we can. Meantime all of you stay safe and hope that you can welcome your visitors back as soon as this lockdown is over.
