It’s not just beautiful scenery that shapes the environment around Brompton Lakes – the suppliers in the local and surrounding area are pretty important too. Here are a few that we think are well worth finding out more about.
Swaledale Cheese Company
"We make all our cheeses by hand following a method believed to have originated from the Cistercian monks who travelled to the Yorkshire Dales from Normandy in the 11th century.
We are very much a local producer supplying a range of specialist cheese shops, delicatessens and independent retailers throughout the UK, we sell direct at farmers’ markets and our cheese can be bought in local shops.
There are 14 varieties including Smoked Swaledale, Blue Swaledale and Swaledale with Old Peculiar Ale – another Yorkshire speciality! " Swaledale Cheese
