Hawes creamery launches new range of products

The new range from Wensleydale Creamery.

Hawes-based Wensleydale Dairy Products has launched a new brand of cheese.

The Wensleydale company says it is making a ‘stand against the bland’ with the launch of its new The Yorkshire Creamery brand.

The new range includes Extra Mature Yorkshire Cheddar, “aged for 15 months to give it a strong and rugged flavour”, a Yorkshire Red, which spends 10 months developing its flavour, and a buttery Double Yorkshire, aged for seven months for a “smooth creamy texture and tangy finish”.

James Pratt, a farmer from Studdah Farm, Bellerby who supplies the Creamery with milk, said: “We’re proud to produce high quality Yorkshire milk for The Yorkshire Creamery, which is helping us and farmers like us build a sustainable foundation for the next generation, my son is already running around in his wellies eager to help.

“The Yorkshire Creamery cheeses taste fantastic, and look brilliant as well.”

David Hartley, managing director of Wensleydale Dairy Products, said: “The Yorkshire Creamery is a range of, honest, tasty, authentic products made with character and integrity.

“It tastes like it ought to and that makes every day eating just that little bit better. People don’t want to settle for mediocre lunches, dinners or snacks. They want food that tastes like it should, and which isn’t over-processed.”

The products will initially be available from selected Morrisons, Booths, Tesco, Asda and Co-op stores.
