Yorkshire Wensleydale or simply ‘Wensleydale’ is a historic mild cheese that has been made in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire since 1150 by Cistercian monks. The art of making the cheese was passed by the monks to the farmer’s wives who produced a blue variety of Wensleydale at their farmhouses. Today, Wensleydale is produced mainly from pasteurised cow’s milk and sheep’s milk to enhance flavour. Wensleydale Creamery in the town of Hawes is seeking to protect the name Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese under PDO designation. But there are other producers of Wensleydale cheese in parts of the UK, mainly in Shropshire and Cheshire.

Each cheese weighs approx. 200g.
