Welcome to Wardhall Dairy
We use our own goat and locally sourced cow milk to produce a delicious range of cheese, butter, buttermilk and curds and whey.
Wardhall Blue (blue goats cheese), Blindcrake (blue cow milk brie), Bobbin (a goat milk banon), Allerby (a robiola) Isel (goat milk brie), Bridekirk (goat cheese crottin), Arkleby (cow milk brie), Tallentire (semi soft white goat milk cheese), Gillands Beck (fresh lactic goat cheese in six flavours), Flatts Beck (fresh lactic cow cheese with herbs and garlic), Wardhall Gold (demi-sel cultured cow butter), Wardhall Ivory (demi-sel cultured goat butter), Parsonby (munster style cows cheese), Dovenby (fresh lactic cow milk cheese), Prospect (fresh goat cheese, both plain and ashed), Leathers Gill (mature goats cheese flavoured with green peppercorns), Gilcrux (matured cows milk cheese) and an unusual revival of curds & whey.
Wardhall Dairy was started in 2007 by Thomas and Lynn Ballantine Dykes on the family farm, Ewe Close, which lies between Gilcrux and Arkleby in north west Cumbria. Lynn hand makes all the products in a small purpose built dairy room on the farm and Thomas is in charge of the paperwork. The dairy is just one of many activities taking place at Ewe Close Farm where ten different types of sheep, goats and pigs are bred.
The cheeses are sold at farmers markets as well through farm shops, hotels and restaurants.
