Curlew Dairy

Leyburn DL8 4HN - View map

We make traditional farmhouse Wensleydale cheese, Old Roan, in our micro dairy in Wensleydale, using milk from a small local farm. Old Roan is the only unpasteurised Wensleydale made in Wensleydale. Unlike traditional crumbly Wensleydale, we use a slower, pre-war recipe which leads to a smooth and buttery texture. We use unpasteurised milk, so the cheese truly reflects the ‘terroir’ of the farm. It's made by hand in small batches of just 500 litres.
