This is Yorkshire’s version of the traditional Mediterranean salad style cheese and it’s been made by Judy Bell and her team in Yorkshire since 1987. A very easy cheese to enjoy on your cheese board, in a salad or in your favourite dish.
Made with whole ewes’ milk, we hand make and hand-salt each cheese to encourage the piquant, lemony flavour and slightly crumbly texture. Matured over a minimum of two weeks, the salt infuses the whole cheese. We then hand-wax each truckle to lock in the fresh flavour and creamy texture and continue to mature on in our cheese stores until ready.
Originally it had another name but we renamed it Yorkshire Fettle in 2008 due to Greece being awarded the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) for the name Feta.
This was Judy Bell’s very first cheese, produced first in 1987 and then launched as a product in 1989. It’s won international awards, and was featured on Paul Hollywood’s BBC One cooking program, Pies & Puds.
