Thornby Moor Dairy

Run by Carolyn and Leonie Fairbairn, Thornby Moor Dairy is located at the heart of the Solway Plain, looking out over the Northern Fells of the Lake District. The dairy is housed within the outbuildings of the old Crofton Hall Estate near Thursby, eight miles west of Carlisle.

We have always taken a practical approach – reading recipes, a lot of trial and plenty of error, common sense and perseverance has resulted in the development of our unique range of cheeses.

Our Milk

Of primary importance to any cheesemaker is the cleanliness and quality of their milk supply. For this our gratitude for their endless hard work go to: Parton Hall, Micklethwaite (Dairy Shorthorn Cows) and Dolken Dairy Goats, Thornby Moor (Goats Milk).

Integrity, good flavour and nutritional value are what we look for when buying food. At Thornby Moor Dairy we will always strive to meet those expectations in the cheeses we sell.
