At Longley Farm we've been making cottage cheese for nearly 50 years. At the end of July, our cottage cheese packaging got a new look. But don't worry, it's still the same delicious recipe as before.
The history of our cottage cheese goes back many years. Joseph Dickinson first discovered cottage cheese in 1944, when he was serving in the Royal Navy alongside the Americans in the Pacific Campaign during WW II. On returning home, Joseph and his brother Edgar took over the family farm in 1948 and started keeping cows and later, making cream. In 1971, Longley Farm cottage cheese was launched, inspired by the original American recipe, but with a Yorkshire twist: a soured cream dressing. We were the first in the country to make cottage cheese on a commercial basis and the soured cream version has now become the British standard.
Using all British milk, and no artificial additives, our cottage cheese continues to stand out from the crowd in terms of quality and flavour, and has regularly taken home awards at the Great Yorkshire Show. The new packaging design, launched at the end of July, highlights Longley Farm’s proud Yorkshire heritage, while the cottage cheese inside is made to the same delicious recipe.
Our full range of cottage cheese includes natural, fat free, chives, fat free chives and pineapple varieties. It is naturally high in protein, and makes a tasty addition to jacket potatoes, salads, quiches and can be used in a variety of sweet and savoury recipes.
