Wensleydale Creamery launches daily digital cheese making experiences

The Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes has launched a series of digital experiences for cheese fans and families.

The Digital Days Out initiative is a two week programme of online experiences to get an insight into artisan cheese-making and everything that goes into Yorkshire Wensleydale.

Using traditional methods to handcraft award-winning Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese using local milk from Dales farms, the Wensleydale Creamery is sharing its cheese-making expertise for the nation to enjoy from the comfort of their homes.

The free events will run from today to Sunday, April 19 on the Wensleydale Creamery website and Facebook Page – Digital Days Out at Wensleydale Creamery

It will feature new digital posts daily, including demonstrations, behind-the-scenes footage, kids’ activities, recipe videos, activities and quizzes, making it a perfect way to keep all the family entertained at home.

While the visitor centre might be temporarily closed to the 350,000 visitors it attracts each year, it is hoped this new digital series will bring to life the full experience online for the first time.

Trish Cannon, visitor centre director at Wensleydale Creamery, said: “In these unprecedented times, we are determined to do whatever we can to bring enjoyable and educational experiences to families who can now discover the special journey of the Wensleydale Creamery and its cheese from their homes.

“Whilst you might not be able to travel to visit us, we believe our wide range of virtual activities and demonstrations will be interesting and fun for the whole family this Easter.”

Join online to see how the signature creamy, crumbly Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese is crafted by skilled cheese-makers. Head to the Wensleydale Creamery website or Facebook page and keep an eye out for updates over the next few weeks.
