Wensleydale Cheese

One of the most well known and well loved of Yorkshire producers, Wensleydale Cheese and butter, direct from their dairy, is available from Roots Farm Shop.

The experts at the Wensleydale dairy are custodians of a 1000-year history of cheesemaking in the Dale. Using traditional methods they handcraft artisan cheese according to time-honoured recipes, using fresh subtly sweet milk from local farms. We are delighted to sell this delicious cheese and we use it in our cafe.

The visitor centre in Hawes is consistently one of the most visited in Yorkshire. For a little taste of the subtly, creamy flavour of Wensleydale Cheese, visit Roots Farm Shop.

Roots Farm Shop Quality

At Roots Farm Shop we are passionate about food, farming and the community.

Our producers are selected for the quality of their produce and their eco approach to farming and food production.  We are proud to stock produce from these local, independent companies who work with the environment when producing delicious food and drink.

We aim to connect the wider community, our customers, who want to shop in a more sustainable way.

In recent years, there has been a growing movement towards more ethical food production methods, driven by concerns about the sustainability of our current food system and the implications of the way we produce our food.  This is one of the fundamental principles of everything we do at Roots as we ourselves at Home Farm, work towards regenerative farming with our herd of grass fed beef cows.
