"Dewlay's dedicated milk supply is sourced locally from farmers that take real pride in their herds' milk quality. When making Lancashire cheese, we have a truly unique secret ingredient! The starter culture - which gives our Lancashire cheese a taste and texture that is simply not found in any other cheese - was specially created in Dewlay over 40 years ago. Each day we keep some of this precious ingredient, and use it to create the following day's culture and so the heritage and tradition continues.
Combine these unique features with the skills of our master cheesemakers in making the very best Lancashire cheese, and you'll see why Dewlay's multi award winning Lancashire cheese stands out from all others. We produce a variety of different sizes and formats – from traditional wheels to more modern blocks and we also supply our range in grated, sliced and prepack varieties for the retail and catering sectors. All of our cheeses are suitable for vegetarians and coeliacs."
