Why Yorkshire has the best dairy in Britain

Wednesday 30 January 2019

The best dairy comes from the happiest cows, and the happiest cows come from Britain – more specifically, from Yorkshire. From creamy ice-cream to crumbly cheese, this region of Northern England has some of best dairy products in Britain – and we rounded up our favorites below.

Wensleydale Creamery


 

Creamy, crumbly, and full of flavour, each piece of Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese is like an explosion of flavor in your mouth. The reason? It’s authenticity. You see, while Wensleydale cheese can be made anywhere, only Yorkshire Wensleydale is handcrafted by skilled cheese-makers using a time-honored recipe. It’s a secret, of course, but we can tell you that it involves milk from local farms, and proprietary cheese-making starter cultures.

 

Our Cow Molly

Get a glimpse into life at a working dairy farm—and taste some of the best ice-cream in England—at Our Cow Molly. Offering a variety of traditional and unique flavors (like Bakewell Tart and Honeycomb), you’ll be hard-pressed to pick a favorite, but we recommend trying the classic “Just Molly” – dairy ice-cream with no added flavour at all.  

 

The Courtyard Dairy

 

 

Cheeselovers will flip for this unique, specialist cheese-shop in Yorksire that features all your soft and smelly favorites, plus all the blue and hard cheeses you can handle. Feeling peckish? In 2017, the shop expanded to include a café serving cheese-based dishes, plus a cheese production room where visitors can learn about the art of cheese-making.
