Wardhall Dairy was started in 2007 by Lynn and Thomas Ballantine Dykes at Ewe Close which lies at Wardhall - midway between Gilcrux, Arkleby and Parsonby in north west Cumbria.
Lynn makes all of the products by hand in a small purpose built dairy room on the farm and Thomas deals with the paperwork.
The dairy is just one of many activities taking place at Ewe Close Farm where ten different types of sheep - some rare breed - goats and pigs are bred.
The cheeses are sold at several regular local farmers markets and also at one-off events in the county as well as through farm shops.
A number of our cheeses feature in the menus of local hotels and restaurants.
