Native Culture

“Apple pie without cheese, is like a kiss without the squeeze”
It is of the traditional Wensleydale cheese made with the milk of a Ewe
Franciscan monks used to keep the little cheese making sheep
They used a culture called rennet to make the finest cheese of mouldy blue  

Wensleydale cheese, the palette does please with a taste fresh and light
You’re not likely to find the blue Wensleydale, cos now they only make white
A piece of fruit cake with cheese or an apple, or maybe Christmas cake too
This amazing bacteria culture with milk, what a taste treat is waiting for you.
