A CELEBRATION of some of the area’s small cheese makers is being held in May.
Country Harvest, near Ingleton, is holding a cheese and wine evening on May 19 to help promote local cheese makers and encourage people to explore the fantastic food made on their doorstep. The cheeses include one made by a young farming couple who are diversifying into the world of cheese making for the first time; others are by more established makers with decades of experience behind them.
For some it will be the first chance to try cheeses like Fellstone, a Wensleydale-style cheese made by Clare and Tom Noblet at their 250-acre upland hill farm Whin Yeats in Hutton Roof.
Other cheeses on offer at the tasting in May include one produced by Ribblesdale, a small artisan producer based in Hawes which specialises in goats cheese; the milk is sourced from a single herd of goats in Lancashire and used to create cheeses on their Yorkshire farm. Sykes Fell Ewes Milk cheese, handmade by the Procter family in Goosnargh, will also be on offer at the event, alongside a Blue Swaledale , rich from cows’ milk with a natural rind, crafted in Richmond, North Yorkshire.
The five cheeses will all be accompanied by wines selected by Chris Leather from Stainton Wines in Kendal. Chris will host the evening and discuss each of the wines in turn and why they should be paired with that particular cheese.
Country Harvest’s Food Hall manager Richard Simmonds said: “Country Harvest is in such a great location where the Dales meet the Lakes and on the cusp of Lancashire too so we’ve chosen cheeses from all three counties. We’ve got a long association with a lot of these cheese makers and we’re also really excited to be the only seller of Fellstone cheese in Yorkshire – it really couldn’t be more local to us as Clare Noblet’s parents are our next door neighbours at Country Harvest! We think we’ve put together a really interesting night for fans of good food and those who like things made from local producers….we’ve included one cheese from much further afield though as we thought it would be a real challenge for Chris! With his encyclopaedic knowledge of wine I’m sure he’ll be fine though and that we’re all going to learn plenty of things too.”
Tickets for the event which runs from 7pm-8.30pm on May 19 cost £10 and are available from Country Harvest on the A65 at Ingleton. Stainton Wines is the main stockists of wine at Country Harvest, a combined food emporium, coffee shop and gift hall.Buy Phentermine 37.5 White Blue Specks

When the brass band last appeared at the venue the event was a sell-out so anyone interested should book their tickets early.
Tickets for the concert on Wednesday, June 15, cost £18 and include a tasty buffet supper while the band performs a mixed programme on the Coffee Shop patio (under a marquee if raining).
Michael Roberts, of Sedbergh Brass Band, said: “We are delighted to be returning to Country Harvest. The band had a really enthusiastic response last time we played there and hopefully the sun will shine. It’s a wonderful location overlooking Ingleborough and, with many new pieces this year, the band is certainly looking forward to performing there again.”
Country Harvest store manager Steve West added: “We are thoroughly looking forward to the evening which was such a success in 2014 that lots of our customers demanded we put it on again!”

About Simon Phillpotts, in his own words:
“The majority of my photography is undertaken right here upon my doorstep within the Yorkshire Dales. Its draw for landscape photographers is very well known but its also a fantastic location for wildlife with a wide range of habitats from wetlands and meadows to high moors and pine forests. Red Squirrel, Hare, Curlew, Little Owl, Red and Black Grouse are just a few of the many species to be found here.
“My images have been Highly Commended in the British Wildlife Photography Awards on several occasions and have featured in national newspapers including the Telegraph, Times, Guardian, Daily Record, Daily Mail, Sun and Mirror, the local press in Yorkshire and the North-East and a variety of books, calendars and magazines.
On TV I have appeared on BBC’s Countryfile with Julia Bradbury and ITV 1’s The Dales with Ade Edmonson.”
