A traditional dairy making a range of cheeses using cows, ewes ans water buffalo milk.

Cheese making started when Judy Bell wanted to make sheeps cheese for those unable to tolerate normal dairy products. These initial aims have been greatly expanded, although the company is still run by the family.

Their range includes 'Yorkshire Blue', Byland Blue', 'Monks Folly' and 'Ryedale' – cows; 'Mrs. Bells Blue', 'Olde York', 'Katy's White Lavender' and 'Basilano' – sheeps; and ''Buffalo Blue' – water buffalo.
