Wensleydale Creamery to feature on BBC Two

Steph McGovern visits the Wensleydale Creamery.

The Wensleydale Creamery is to feature on BBC Two programme Made in Great Britain this week.

Hosted by Steph McGovern, the episode arrives in Wensleydale to discover the firm’s historic story.

Viewers get to discover how Wensleydale cheese-making has changed since the monastic times, through to modern day cheese-making at the Wensleydale Creamery.

The presenters have a go at bringing long-lost cheese-making practices to life through the programme they go behind the scenes at the Wensleydale Creamery and they are surprised to find that modern cheese-making isn’t just done by machine.

David Hartley, managing director for the Wensleydale Creamery, said: “We are passionate and proud of our Yorkshire heritage and provenance and were delighted to welcome the BBC TWO film crew to showcase and celebrate our rich cheese-making history of food production and farming in the region, which has shaped the Yorkshire Dales that we live & and work in today.

“We were thrilled to host Steph McGovern and the makers at the creamery, and I hope they enjoyed their visit and learnt something new about our history, handcrafted cheeses and our beautiful area.”

Made in Great Britain is screened on Friday at 9pm on BBC Two.
