Producers - Shepherds Purse Cheeses

Shepherds Purse takes pride in producing the finest traditional Yorkshire cheeses by hand using natural ingredients, with all its milk coming from local farmers. Founded by Judy Bell in 1989 the business is still family run with her daughters Caroline and Katie now at the helm. Judy began making cheese in her farmhouse kitchen after realising how many people have an intolerance to dairy products and discovering that sheep's milk could offer a delicious alternative. The company has racked up dozens of awards over the years with their cheeses being taken on by specialist delis and major supermarket chains as well as being a mainstay on many cheeseboards served up by top hotels, restaurants and pubs.
