2016 was another great year for Longley Farm at the Great Yorkshire Show as we were once again delighted to take home a whole host of awards for our delicious dairy products.
Our Luxury Jersey Butter had a great year, not only winning best butter but also taking home Reserve Supreme Champion Dairy product and Best Yorkshire Product.
It wasn’t our only Jersey product to do well, as our Jersey Extra Rich Double Cream was chosen as the best Channel Island Cream, with our Jersey Pouring Cream taking second place in this category. Our Jersey Extra Rich also claimed the best cream with more than 40% fat, and our Double Cream took second place.
Our yogurts also had a great year at the Yorkshire show. Longley Farm Bio Natural Yogurt was the best low fat natural yogurt, and we took first and second in the whole milk flavoured yogurt category with our hazelnut and rhubarb yogurts respectively.
Our customers are always telling us that our cottage cheese stands out from the crowd, and it was nice to see this reflected in the results this year, as our Natural Cottage Cheese took first place in the soft & fresh cheese category.
Our delicious cottage cheese and yogurts are well-known across the country, but not as many people have heard of our fromage frais (even though we think they are equally delicious). This year, two of our fromage frais took first place in their categories. Boysenberry (a fruit which is a cross between a blackberry, raspberry, loganberry, and dewberry) was chosen as the best chilled dairy product, high praise in such a diverse category. Strawberry fromage frais took first place in the Chilled Dairy Product with Added Flavour category, followed by our Pineapple Cottage Cheese in second place and our Fat Free Cottage Cheese with Chives in 3rd place.
