Yorkshire’s Wensleydale Creamery recently celebrated 20 years of its milk producer group and is now actively looking for more Yorkshire farmers to join this initiative.

The Hawes based creamery is now sourcing milk from over 40 local farms and has seen steady year-on-year growth both in the UK and internationally.

Following its busiest festive period ever, along with a £5million investment in its dairy and cheesemaking facilities, Wensleydale Creamery is now seeking more dairy farmers to help with future growth.

“I cannot stress enough the importance and value of The Wensleydale Creamery to our local and deeply rural Dales economy,” said Matthew Bell, chairman of The Wensleydale Milk Producer Group. “It’s a really competitive market out there for the dairy industry.  We need to continue to work hand in hand to ensure that we deliver the milk that’s needed to supply The Creamery, as it aspires to grow over the next 20 years.”
