The agricultural settlements of the Yorkshire dales have been renowned for their cheeses for many centuries, but those cheeses have taken many different guises over the course of their long history: monastic sheep’s milk cheeses, soft blue cow’s milk cheeses, and now the modern white Wensleydale, which for a generation of cheese enthusiasts has become synonymous with Yorkshire.


Wensleydale Creamery, which sits at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, produces the best version of this modern classic. Within the company, the version of Wensleydale cheese that we stock is known as ‘Kit Calvert Wensleydale’, after the local man who kept the factory solvent during a crisis in the 1930s. Unlike the standard block Wensleydale that dominates the market, this cheese is made using animal rennet, pressed into five-kilo cylinders, and bound in cloth. Its texture is less crumbly and its flavour more buttery than the hard acid Wensleydale that is favoured by many supermarkets.


The Wensleydale Creamery prides itself on sourcing its milk from local farms and providing work to over two hundred residents of its rural area. In 2013, the company was awarded PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status for the name ‘Yorkshire Wensleydale’, in order to recognise and protect its important link with Yorkshire.
