The Wensleydale Creamery, based in Hawes at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, is adapting to current circumstances and supporting local businesses by developing its online mail order offering so that customers can get their favourite cheeses, local produce and gifts delivered direct to their door.

Recognising that customers are unable to travel to its popular Visitor Centre, the business is bringing its offering to customers’ homes by launching a new ‘Online Deli’ section on its website.

Along with its comprehensive range of favourite Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese, available for individual purchase, online shoppers can order from the new Yorkshire Creamery range of handcrafted cheese. The Online Deli also features a large selection of local produce from crackers, chutneys and oils to biscuits, sweets, chocolate and fruitcake, available to purchase online and delivered directly to homes.

For those looking to put a smile on the face of friends and family, customers can order from the Wensleydale Creamery’s range of exclusive hampers, filled with their award-winning cheeses and the finest local produce.

The Creamery is also launching its Visitor Centre home and giftware range online for the first time – from unique, locally sourced woodware, pottery and kitchen accessories to homeware, such as candles and diffusers; all sourced from local Yorkshire businesses.

Trish Cannon, Visitor Centre Director said: “At Wensleydale Creamery, we are determined to do whatever we can to bring happiness to homes and support our customers to get their favourite cheese delivered to their door.

“Whilst supermarkets are facing increasing demand and pressure, we don’t want to see people go without the everyday essentials – we hope our online deli will ensure everyone is able to easily access our award-winning cheeses, as well as supporting other local Yorkshire businesses whose delicious food products and locally-made gifts are available through our mail order.

"With a wide range of local produce on offer, it is a great way to treat yourself or send special gifts to your loved ones, as well as support your local community.”

The Wensleydale Creamery has also reduced postage costs from £4.95 to £2.95 (minimum £10 spend applies) to ensure as many customers* as possible can enjoy of the Online Deli.
