Our family run business uses cows milk from the family's dairy farm in Teesdale.  

It's been in the family for four generations so we know the milk is good.

Who Are We?

We are a husband and wife team, Allison and Jonathan Raper, who took over the business in January 2016, rebranded in July 2017 and moved to bigger premises in January 2019. 

Our Products

We make eight soft cheeses: Teesdale Blue, White Hilton, Teesdale Goat, Barney Brie, Doris, Allison's Garlic Special & our flavoured Teesdale Curd cheeses using milk from our family farm. 

We also make an organic kefir using milk from Acorn Dairy. 

How to get your hands on our cheese

We sell at a number of local farmers markets and food festivals see  'Events', and we can arrange local delivery for larger orders. We also supply a number of local outlets who are listed on this site under 'Where to Buy'.   You can find the restaurants that use our cheeses on their menus there too.  Finally you can buy our cheese directly from our diary by appointment or we can arrange a postal delivery. Just drop us an email. 

Please note we cannot sell direct from the dairy without an appointment. 

Wholesalers please contact us for more information.
