Yoredale is a delicately milky and buttery Wensleydale with a clean fresh flavour
Ben and Sam Spence started making cheese in 2019 after leaving their jobs in finance. They moved from Manchester back to Ben's family farm where they settled on cheesemaking after looking for a way to diversify the farm's output. They are now settled at their own site where their dairy is housed in a small, converted garage. To help them develop Yoredale, Ben and Sam have spent time making other territorial cheeses like Stonebeck Wensleydale and Kirkham's Lancashire. The cheese community has not only shared knowledge with them but awarded them the Dougal Campbell Bursary at the Specialist Cheesemakers Association farm visit in 2022 in recognition of their progress and the promise of what Yoredale will be. Formerly known own as Old Roan.
Please note all cheeses are hand-cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
