A pale, mild and creamy cheese made from a very finely cut ewes milk curd which is lightly pressed to produce a light crumbly texture, with an acidic finish. When the Fresh Cistercian monks first settled in Wensleydale they were given a free-hold parcel of land, which today is known as ‘Abbotside’. This land is predominately a heather moor and is still common land on which local farmers have the right to graze their sheep. From 1100AD until the introduction of the Enclosures Act, both sheep and mountain goats were milking animals. During the summer months they produced a surplus and the monks converted the milk into cheese. Ewes milk is rich particularly high in minerals and vitamins.
