About Us

Appleby Creamery, established in 2007

Our range of products is the result of a collaboration between Mark our Dairy Farmer and Maurice our Cheesemaker.

Maurice is an artisan cheesemaker and currently produces a range of cheese from the creamery in Appleby, Cumbria in the North of England. He is ably suported by a team of dedicated cheese makers who have been with the business since their teens and were trained by former founders of the business, they were originally employed as apprentices.

This expertise and experience combined with the highest quality ingredients makes the Appleby Creamery cheese an amazing range of products which we are hugely proud of and we know you will enjoy.
